With almost half (49 per cent) of Australians either being born overseas or having a parent who was, the importance of Harmony Week is growing in our communities.
Harmony Week is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism and the successful integration of migrants into our community. Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world and we should celebrate this and work to maintain it.
The message of Harmony Week, everyone belongs. A message that is reflected in CatholicCare’s vision and mission.
“CatholicCare's vision for a society in which we all feel supported and valued is something that inspires me, not only during Harmony Week, but every day.” CatholicCare CEO, Alastair McGibbon reflects on Harmony Week
“The communities we work with are diverse, as are our teams. We are committed to strengthening communities and relationships to ensure a sense of belonging for all.”
