News from the SVD Director of Refugee Programmes.
On the 23rd of December, 2011 the Janssen Spirituality Centre started a new ministry with refugees and asylum seekers. The young men who were released to our care for community detention has been a direct response to the Australian Government's request for help to relieve pressure on Australian immigration detention facilities. This ministry is both cross-cultural and interfaith. A year down the track has shown us that the program is working and making a big difference to the health and wellbeing of these young men. We are grateful to all people who, in one way or another, have helped to make this program successful.
Thank you and Peace be upon you.
