August 24, 2023
The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has this morning launched its 2023-24 Social Justice Statement. Australia’s bishops have been publishing such statements, urging the Catholic community to reflect and act on social, economic and ecological issues, since the 1940s.
This year’s statement is titled Listen, Learn, Love: A New Engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
“Strengthening our relationship with our First Peoples is integral and indeed critical to the strengthening of the whole nation,” Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv said at this morning’s launch, held in Western Sydney.
