This year has been a significant one for many of us as Josephites.
The polarisation of debate around the Voice referendum has challenged us in many different ways, and the crises in the housing market, low wages, inadequate welfare payments and the devastation facing Earth have both tested and galvanised us. We’ve been really conscious of the efforts right across the entire Josephite community to respond.
At the Josephite Justice Network gathering in March, we spoke of the way that so many have demonstrated passion and concern for those suffering at this time. Just sharing what is happening across our communities gave us new energy and fresh hope, as well as renewed strength for future possibilities.
If you would like to join the Josephite Justice Network and share such opportunities, we would be delighted to hear from you. The role description provided below will give you an idea of our goals and activities, and if you are interested or would like to know more, please contact us here.
We remain inspired by the many different ways that Josephites witness to the cry of those made poor and the cry of Earth, which remain at the heart of who we are.
