Anti Poverty Week and Catholic Mission month

The Bishop’s Social Justice Commission wishes to draw the attention of parishes and schools that there is two foci during the month of October - Anti Poverty Week and Catholic Mission month. This is a time when through Catholic Mission resources global poverty is emphasised.  It is also a time during Anti-Poverty Week (Sunday, October 15 – Saturday, October 21) that awareness can be raised in communities of the poverty experienced in Australia, including your own local district.  Resources can be found here.
