Family Week

Join us from 10-15 May 2021 for Family Week!

Family Week is a perfect time to come together to celebrate the power of family relationships in all their diversities, and the importance they play in our lives and community.


Over and over again we see that family bonds are essential for the stability of relationships in society, for the work of education, and for integral human development, for they are inspired by love, responsible intergenerational solidarity, and mutual trust. These are factors that can make even the most adverse situations more bearable and bring a spirit of trust fraternity to our world, enabling it to feel as a single family, where the greatest attention is paid to those most in need.”

Pope Francis
(From his address to the United Nations, Clementine Hall, 2013)


Transform a life this Family Week

Family Week is also a great opportunity for your school to put faith in to action and help support some of the most vulnerable families in our community.

Your fundraising efforts this Family Week will provide refugee and asylum seeker families access the care and support they need to rebuild their lives in Victoria.
