The Parish Social Justice Team invites you to be part of our 'Community Conversation'. Both our Epping & Carlingford communities have participated in the Jesuit Refugee Service Foodbank collection for a number of years now. However, how many of us understand the difficulties faced by those living in our community who were once refugees, asylum seekers and other displaced people?

Our 'conversation' will be guided by our friends from JRS, a Catholic organisation, whose mission is to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of these people. In small groups we will discuss our shared values in relation to refugees, hear and learn from those who have experienced these situations, then together agree on practical initiatives through which we can offer support to them.

Please join us on Sunday May 29th 11am to 1pm in the St Gerard's meeting room with morning tea from 10.30am. Please RSVP by contacting John Whealy johnwwhealy@gmail.com or Mark Smith mark.luciasmith@gmail.com or call the Parish Office.
