This workshop is most suitable for Parish and School leaders interested in promoting the ‘human face’ of the refugee and asylum seeker story in their communities. It would also be suitable for those parishioners wishing to work with migrants and refugees. (Morning tea included) CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Faith Formation.
