Caritas/Justice Office

The Caritas/Justice Office aims to enable information, education and action for justice to be more visible and accessible to the Sandhurst community in line with the statement that “Action for justice and participation in the transformation of the world is a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel” (Rome Synod of Bishops 1971).

We do this by providing

  • leadership,
  • education and formation, 
  • access to information and resources,
  • supportive networking opportunities 

 in the area of social justice and Catholic Social Teaching for the Sandhurst community.

The Caritas/Justice Office works with, and for, official Church agencies, including Caritas Australia, Catholic Earthcare, the Australian Catholic Bishops Office for Social Justice, the Australian Catholic Migrant & Refugee Office and Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, in the areas of education, social action, advocacy and fundraising. It collaborates with other agencies including St Vincent de Paul and Catholic Care when this is beneficial.

In parishes, we work with and through the network of Parish Caritas/Justice Reps.  We encourage every parish to appoint a Caritas/Social Justice Parish Representative(s)

In schools, we work with and through the RE Leaders network and Catholic Education Sandhurst SJ Reference Group.

Sandhurst Diocesan Social Justice Committee is comprised of Parish Reps from each of the 3 deaneries.
