Social Justice Sunday – 27 September


The 2015–16 Social Justice Statement is titled For those who’ve come across the seas: justice for refugees and asylum seekers.  Australia’s Bishops ask us to re-examine our responses to refugees and asylum seekers. They remind us of the nearly 60 million people around the world who are displaced from their homes and of the war and violence that are devastating countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. When people come to us seeking refuge, can we in conscience respond to them with cruel and self-defeating policies such as offshore processing and indefinite detention?

For further details about the Social Justice Statement, visit the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council website or call (02) 8306 3499.
