“Long before there was such a thing as Australia there were families who lived here, people who cared for each other and the earth, people for whom the world was a deeply spiritual place, people who loved to tell stories about the things that really mattered to them: their dreams and their struggles, their hopes and their passions.

Then there was a giant cataclysm.”

With these words Dr. John Falzon, CEO of the National Council of the St Vincent de Paul Society, launched the Australia Bishop’ Social Justice Statement “The Gift of Family in Difficult Times –  the Social and Economic Challenges facing families today”.

Dr. Falzon’s Address on Friday September 21 in Canberra, can be found through the link SOCIAL JUSTICE STATEMENT LAUNCH .
