Catholic Welfare urges International Families Day observance

Catholic Welfare Australia is calling on all its Member Organisations to stop at 11:00 on Thursday to do something special to celebrate the International Day of Families.

The work of the Catholic Welfare Australia's 53 Member Organisations is clearly committed to providing support and services to families throughout Australia.

The National Secretariat of Catholic Welfare Australia has prepared a Resource Paper suggesting a number of ways in which Member Organisations can mark the occasion. The paper - titled International Day of Families 2003 - Something to Celebrate - is available for download from Catholic Welfare's website.

An accompanying statement released yesterday says the ideas are simple.

"[They] promote a focus on families ranging from morning tea with a multicultural flavour, a suggested reflection and discussion questions to invigorate a dynamic discussion on family life.

"It would be hoped that Member Organisations could also seek the involvement of the families for whom they provide support and commitment.
