Respect: Confronting Violence and Abuse

Shane Taylor
Head of Faith and Mission

We celebrated Social Justice last Sunday 28 August. The Australian Bishops’ Social Justice Statement, Respect: Confronting violence and abuse, invites us to nurture relationships marked by equality and reciprocity rather than domination and violence, respect and freedom rather than coercion and control. The Statement provides contacts for those who are experiencing violence and abuse to get help, and for people who want assistance to change their behaviour.

To read the statement or for more information: ACBC Office for Justice, Ecology and Peace, www.socialjustice.catholic.org.au or Tel (02) 6201 9845.
