"In today’s world, the work of Catholic Social Services is more valued than ever before.

As Christians we seek to ease the burden on our most vulnerable in society.

We ask for the blessings of St Louise de Marillac, Patron Saint of social workers, on the work of Catholic Social Services, the healing they provide, and the people they serve."

- Bishop Michael Gielen -
