Migration without Trafficking

ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) advises of the forthcoming day of prayer for victims of modern slavery and human trafficking.

'Migration without trafficking' is the theme for this year's commemoration on Feb 08, the feast of St Josephine Bakhita, who was kidnapped as a child in Sudan, and later freed, dedicating her life to address the horror of trafficking .  Go to ACRATH's web page        [Feb 02]

Act Justly

Sydney Archdiocese's Justice & Peace Office reports on the Feb-Mar issue of Act Justly:

'There's a great variety of articles, beginning with an overview of the latest figures on the rate of Indigenous incarceration, and discover just how far we are from being even close to ‘Closing the Gap’. Then we have Pope Francis’s homily from his recent visit to Santiago, Chile. His message to Church leaders to make social justice a priority comes across passionately.
'There is also an update on the Archdiocese’s efforts to combat modern slavery and the planned celebrations for St Bakhita’s Feast Day. There is also good news from Ashfield parish about their efforts towards affordable housing in the Inner West.
'Lastly we have a very exciting invitation to you to be part of our innovative new project—‘Caring for Creation Through Solar’, a unique opportunity to access high-quality, low-cost solar alongside other Catholic communities.'           Click here for Act Justly     [Feb 02]
