2016 ARCHBISHOP’S CHRISTMAS APPEAL FOR LifeLink: Dignity at the heart of Centacare’s 40-year mission
“The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.”
As the Year of Mercy came to a close on the Feast of Christ the King, MercyCare celebrated the end of the Jubilee Year with a world class concert that aimed to shine a light on acts of mercy within the community.
Attendees at a recent talk by Irish eco-theologian Father Sean McDonagh were told that Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical Laudato Si marked a significant shift in Catholic social teaching, and offered a new vision of interaction between human beings and the rest of creation.
Almost two months after the ACBC Social Justice Statement, A Place at the Table, celebrated “the great success story of our ageing population,” Archbishop Timothy Costelloe blessed the new Burswood Head Office of Catholic Homes, a Christian based, not-for-profit aged care organisation.
