Parish Involvement

Catholic Social Services Victoria (CSSV) does not stand alone in our work for right social relationships. To be a coherent body, which is truly able to work in a multi-faceted way on the issues facing Victoria, we rely on the intimate involvement of the Bishops of Victoria and their offices, religious congregations, our 45 member organisations and their 7,000 staff, and the communities which make up the 315 parishes across Victoria. Significantly, Australian parishes make available a range of social service activities providing for those in need. In some ways, they can reach out to sections of the community that professional service agencies cannot. Services provided by parishes usually have a strong personal focus on those being served.

As part of its mission, CSSV aims to provide resources to parish communities to help strengthen their mission in serving those in most need within the local community.
