Our Work Today

(1 Vote)

Our Constitution commits us first and foremost to “working for and building the Kingdom of God”. We are especially concerned with issues that affect women, children and the marginalised.  Our work includes both practical support and advocacy.  Our current and recent concerns as well as projects at a diocesan and state level include:

  • Support for women leaving prison.
  • Support for women in and leaving refuges and hospitals.
  • Support for children from disadvantaged families returning to school.
  • Campaigning for better accommodation for people with severe disabilities, especially young adults.
  • Campaigning for equal opportunities in education across Western Australia.
  • Campaigning for various issues in maternal health including at a local level better support for mothers suffering from postnatal depression and internationally for an approach to maternal health that is based on better care for women in pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.
  • Raising awareness within our own organisation about end of life and other bioethical issues including advanced health care directives, euthanasia, organ donation, surrogacy and abortion. In these issues, we liaise closely with other organisations and with our own national body, particularly the CWLA Bioethics Convenor.
  • Over the past decade we have also made submissions to government bodies on a wide range of social issues including prostitution law reform, cannabis law reform, human rights legislation and paid parental leave.
  • In all of our work, we are deeply committed to being guided by authentic Catholic teaching in both principle and practice. We seek to raise our own awareness as ordinary Catholic women from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and age groups of how the Kingdom of God is to be manifested in our everyday lives. We ‘choose to work in love’.
