The Joy of Christmas

My Christmas reflection for CatholicCare Sydney is available here. May you all experience the joy of the incarnation.  

Catholic Organizations are Not Just NGOs

Pope Francis has said that the Church is not an NGO. In fact he has said it more than once. Why is he saying this? Is there something wrong with being an NGO? What does it mean for organisations like CatholicCare that are NGOs and also very much part of the Church? In this reflection for CatholicCare Sydney, I look at how the mission of a Catholic organization makes it more than just another NGO.

Joe Grech Memorial Colloquium

I feel very honoured to have been invited to chair the 3rd annual Joe Grech Memorial Colloquium on Ethics & Migration in Melbourne on 22 August.  Bishop Joe was a great friend of people on the move, especially those who are forcibly displaced. Details are available from the Australian Catholic Migrant & Refugee Office.
