Service & Outreach
We have a dream that our Service and Outreach ministry will show Jesus’ radical love to those in the wider community who may feel marginalised, disconnected, and vulnerable . The ministry facilitates opportunities, for those within the community, to be the hands and feet of Jesus to people in need.

Social Justice Group
The Caloundra Catholic Community Social Justice Network (CCCSJN) was established as an outcome of the Parish Assembly in 2009 to respond to the call of Jesus to help spread the Gospel message of justice and peace. In response to current Archdiocesan initiatives and to the 2022 Plenary Council Decree 1 (RECONCILIATION: HEALING WOUNDS, RECEIVING GIFTS) and Decree 8 (INTEGRAL ECOLOGY AND CONVERSION FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COMMON HOME), the CCCSJN divided into two groups, a Reconciliation Action Plan Working Party (RAPWP) and a Laudato Si’ Action Group (LSAG).
Please contact Bob Cullen [email protected] for more information. All are very welcome to find out more about these practical ways that we can respond to the challenge of Pope Francis and be involved in a ministry that seeks to respond to the Gospel Message of Jesus.
Pope Francis challenged “Let us be renewed by God’s mercy…and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.” (Laudato Si. On Care for Our Common Home. 2015).
