01 Nov 2017 | Clare Deignan

A fluffy pillow, a warm blanket, a fresh towel and a toothbrush – these are just a list of everyday items that most of us take for granted. But Year 7 student at Sacred Heart College in Sorrento, WA, Vincent Pettinicchio knows to those sleeping rough, a few simple objects can make all the difference.

Prayer blog: Eradication of Poverty Day

15 Oct 2017 | Andy Hamilton SJ

We usually think of poverty as something that afflicts third world nations. But it is also present in Australia – shamefully so, in a nation of great wealth. We can see its effects in the lives of Indigenous Australians, with their poorer life expectancy income and educational opportunities, and greater likelihood of addiction, hospitalisation and jailing.


Catholic Teacher Blog: World Humanitarian Day - August 19

09 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

World Humanitarian Day was instituted to remember people who have served in humanitarian missions and especially those who have lost their lives in the course of their service. It is an opportunity to call to mind the people who have gone before us, and especially to honour our martyrs. These include Christians who were killed because of their faith or because they recognised how precious each human being is regardless of race or religion, and dedicated their lives to serve them when they were under threat. They both inspire us and keep us honest.

09 Aug 2017 | Noelle Ramirez

Picture this: Seeing a beautiful, bright, red-orange glow, only to find it disappear from your very eyes, leaving you in complete and utter darkness. Now, imagine every night of your life, with only a dim flicker of a dangerous kerosene lamp lighting your way.

A letter to Dorothy Day

23 May 2017 | Michael McGirr

Dear Dorothy Day, I can remember the day at the end of November in 1980 when you died. You were 83 years of age and living in New York; I was a callow youth of 18 helping homeless people in the inner parts of Melbourne and trying to find my way in the world. Actually, the homeless were the ones helping me but it took ages to realise that.
