Peace, Justice, Ecology
The Peace, Justice, Ecology Team, as part of the Diocese of Parramatta “Mission Enhancement Team” (MET Parramatta), identifies, reflects on, and responds to issues which affect society and the natural environment, especially the most vulnerable and marginalised. The team disseminates information, supports parishes and schools in taking action, and liaises with like-minded welfare and social justice organisations.
REFUGEES AND PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM
Many people in the Diocese of Parramatta show great welcome, compassion and love to Refugees and People Seeking Protection/Asylum. At the same time, Migrants and Refugees “bring energy, drive and dynamism to Western Sydney”. They also, as recognised by Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv, Bishop of Parramatta, “contribute hugely to the renewal and revitalisation of the Catholic Church”. This is why parishes, schools, agencies and individuals throughout the Diocese are joining a “Diocesan Journey… Walking with Refugees and People Seeking Protection”.
