On 17 September Bishop Vincent Long launched the 2014 Election Kit prepared by Catholic Social Services Victoria. Entitled ‘Mend the Net’, the material builds on the general principles that Catholic Social Teaching derives from the Gospels and the Church’s reflection on society. Copies of the brochures and postcards are available from the welcome desk today. Parishioners are encouraged to write to or email their local member and ask where they stand on the issues highlighted in the brochure. The postcards provide a ready way of making this contact with Parliamentary candidates.
