Message from the Archbishop of Melbourne

“For over 30 years, the generosity of the Catholic community has supported the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne to provide funding for the many charitable works for the Church.

I am delighted to introduce the new Melbourne Catholic Archbishop’s Charitable Fund which will continue the Catholic tradition of social justice and the promotion of the welfare and dignity of our brothers and sisters”.

Peter A Comensoli
Archbishop of Melbourne

Chaplaincy Sunday 2018

Sunday 20 May 2018 
 
The 2018 Melbourne Catholic Archbishop’s Charitable Fund, Chaplaincy Sunday Appeal, is focused on the great work of our dedicated Prison Chaplains. Scattered throughout our state of Victoria are 15 prison and correctional centres in which there are approximately 7,200 residents, 512 of whom are women. Representing the Church, these Prison Chaplains represent each one of us in our Communities of Faith and visit every prison and correctional centre in Victoria where they listen, connect and endeavour to understand and comfort people feeling lost or abandoned, and extend support to prisoners’ family members, or the significant people in their lives.
