The Lord said, ‘whatever you did for the least of my little ones, you have done for me’. The essence of Catholic living, therefore, is to recognise Jesus in the outcast, the broken, the addicted and those in physical and spiritual need. The Archdiocese has numerous agencies which assist with a variety of the personal and social needs of people regardless of race, colour or creed.
The Catholic Migrant Centre provides a range of services supporting humanitarian refugees and migrants to settle in Western Australia. Whilst providing life skills and six month intensive intervention, support is also available for up to five years. Further information is available on the website below.
