TEN STEPS TOWARDS AN INCLUSIVE, SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY

Australian Catholic Social Justice Council

#3 IDENTIFY THOSE WHO EXPERIENCE EXCLUSION

Consider the key areas of economic exclusion in your neighbourhood.  It may be issues like homelessness, environmental degradation, youth unemployment or cuts to Sunday penalty rates.

Over the year ahead, consider where the economy fails your local community.  Be mindful that sometimes poverty and exclusion is hidden.  Are there particularly vulnerable groups in our churches, workplaces or schools?

Are you able to give back to the community as a member of the St Vincent de Paul Society?

“True charity requires courage: let us overcome the fear of getting our hands dirty so as to help those in need.” Pope Francis.  Put you faith into action and make a difference.  Speak to Father or ask at the Parish Office for a Vinnies contact.

44 “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’  45 “He will reply, ‘truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these; you did not do for me.’ Matthew 25:44-45
