The Catholic community in Melbourne is made up of a rich tapestry of people, of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. United by our faith and love for God and neighbour, we strive to live our lives according to the way of Jesus Christ in our homes, our workplaces and throughout the wider community.

One of our key priorities is to support the poor, the broken, the abused, the marginalised and those living with disability. This informs and animates our actions to eradicate modern slavery. The eradication of modern slavery in the Archdiocese’s operations and supply chain is an extension of our mission identity and Catholic Social Teaching which emphasise respect for the human dignity of the person.
