Our Vision

  • We believe in the inherent value and dignity of every human being.
  • Everyone belongs equally in a state of unconditional love and union.
  • We are one and through solidarity we more clearly identify and name what separates us.
  • We find in ourselves and in the other our true “image of God” in which we are created and connected.

Our Mission

  • To provide Gospel-Centred ministries to the ‘poor’ those who are powerless, dismissed, or considered lesser in society.
  • To relieve poverty, disadvantage, social isolation and helplessness of Australians, and people living overseas in certified developing countries.
  • To share resources to help people live in a more sustainable way.
  • To help change lives both locally and internationally.

Our Approach

Our approach is one of solidarity. Solidarity is not about “I am helping you” but choosing through word, deed and in spirit to join and accept others as fully human – in our struggles and gifts alike. This work requires to relational accompaniment – risking an act of compassion. It recognizes our responsibilities, gifts and power to challenge injustice and to contribute to the ‘common good’.
