How faith communities can better welcome seasonal workers will be the focus of the seventh Australian Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office (ACMRO) National Conference, to be held at the Australian Catholic University campus in Melbourne.

With the theme ‘Welcoming seasonal workers in Australia: Gift and Responsibility’, the conference will address issues faced by seasonal and migrant workers in Australia, emphasising their contributions to Australian society beyond their labour, and exploring how faith communities in Australia and Australian society can welcome and learn from these gifts, fostering positive change.

This event is a collaboration between the ACMRO, the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s Office for Justice, Ecology and Peace and Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans.
