On February 24, a public forum at the ACU in Melbourne will explore how the Church, through its parishes and organisations, can play a significant role in combatting family violence.
The forum is part of a 2016 conference Review, Reimagine, Renew: Mission making a difference in a changing world, (Melbourne 24-26 February 2016), held by Catholic Social Services Victoria and Australia, in conjunction with the Australian Catholic University.
Experts will also consider how Church communities can respond appropriately to victims and offenders, through links with specialist services and awareness of the issues.
Following questions from the audience, Bishop Vincent Long will respond to the discussion and issues raised.
