Over two workshops, the current Social Justice Statement from the national Bishops will be explored: ‘To live life to the full: Mental health in Australia today’. With reference to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global and national challenges, the first workshop will discuss the timely Statement incorporating prayerful reflection and discernment. The second workshop will discuss ways of bringing the critically important Statement to life within parishes and hubs, with an invitation for parish-based Social Justice Advocates. “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full” John 10:10 CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Faith Formation
