This Christmas, Catholic Mission is inviting you to learn the story of Fr Eugen from Romania.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, guided by the missionary spirit, Fr Eugen and a network of volunteers have opened their hearts and homes to welcome families fleeing conflict.
With the war still ongoing, Fr Eugen has said the support provided to him by Catholic Mission and its generous donors enable him to continue to provide a safe environment for the refugees who have had to leave their country under duress.
To help Fr Eugen continue this important work and assist Catholic Mission to support those in most need, please consider sharing in the Christmas spirit by donating at catholicmission.org.au
Today, more than half a million children in Vietnam live with a disability. Even though the right to an education is mandated by Vietnamese law, thousands of school-aged children in Vietnam stay at home or sit uninvolved in classrooms because of a disability. When these children become adults, they face serious disadvantages in life due to the gap in their education. Many are trapped in a perpetual cycle of intergenerational poverty and discrimination.
What initially began as a humble effort to reduce waste at St Brigid’s Primary School in Raymond Terrace quickly developed into a whole school environmental action plan that secured them as the victors of the NSW Minister’s Young Climate Champions Award.
An inclusive, interfaith event is being held this Saturday at the Hunter Wetlands Centre, which encourages attendees to reflect on their own faith journey and listen and learn from others’ experiences.
