Social Services Sunday, 20th September – a time to reflect and give thanks

On 20th September 2020, we mark Social Services Sunday within the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne. On this day we are invited to give thanks and pray for all who provide care and support to those who are marginalised and vulnerable within our community. We recognise with deep gratitude, those working within Catholic Social Service Victoria’s 45 member organisations, made up of 7,000 passionate and committed staff and 17,000 generous volunteers, who together, serve more than 200,000 people in need each year. We also give thanks for all in our parishes, who are often at the forefront of providing practical support and care to those in need within their local communities, and beyond. Indeed, many of our social services agencies were either born from or are sustained by Parish initiatives and support.
