Justice Reflections From Fr. Claude

We are invited to proclaim a hope to our world by addressing issues of justice, peace, and genuine human development for all God's people despite war and terrorism, an ongoing pandemic, poverty and injustice, dishonesty and manipulation of the truth and propaganda, political expediency, and the harsh effects of climate change. The stories of Advent are meant to shape how we are called to be as followers of Christ as the truth teller, the God-bearer the forbearing elder, the righteous ‘mensch’ and the faithful questioner. In playing these roles, we must also look to the other players around us in a community of supporting roles to one another.

Inner West Council grants event

Wonderful to be part of the Inner West Council grants event. Such an amazing array of very deserved recipients this year of which the Edmund Rice Centre was one.


You are warmly invited to join us online for an address by Dame Meg Taylor DBE, former Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum and current member of the Pacific Elders' Voice, on Friday 8 December at 12pm AEDT. Dame Meg Taylor is a Papua New Guinean lawyer and diplomat and was the PNG Ambassador to the US, Mexico and Canada from 1989 to 1994. In 2014, Dame Meg was appointed Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum, a position which she held until 2021. There are few Pacific Islander leaders better placed than Dame Meg to talk about the challenges and opportunities facing the region. We are honoured that Dame Meg will be spending some time at the Centre with us and look very much forward to her address on Emerging Priorities in the Pacific.
