Enabling Communities: Social Justice Week Workshops

WelCom August 2018:

Welcoming participation in our communities.

Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand and the Wellington and Palmerston North Justice and Peace Commissions are holding interactive workshops on disability and participation in our community, through the lens of Catholic social teaching.

The workshops will look at disability and participation in a local context, using the process of ‘See, Judge, and Act’.

The purpose is to bring together different parts of each diocese to discuss how we as the Church can become more informed, inclusive in attitude and active in making our communities truly welcoming and accessible to all people.
