Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference Social Justice Statement
The Bishops invite schools to begin a new engagement with the First Peoples to overcome injustice.
Each year the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference (ACBC) issues a major Social Justice Statement reflecting on the current, social, economic and ecological challenges.
The 2023-2024 statement is titled: Listen, Learn, Love: A New Engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
In partnership with the Diocese of Parramatta’s Mission Enhancement Team (MET) – Peace, Justice, Ecology Team secondary students are invited to engage with the statement to understand how they can work together in their school communities to transform Catholic teaching into social action.

Catholic education has a long tradition of social teaching, at the centre of which is the dignity of each person and the common good.
Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. This positive approach can be seen in how we interact and learn with one another, work collaboratively and take ownership of our behaviour as well as active involvement in faith-based experiences.
