community in Campbelltown, mentioning not only "a heritage that
includes Irish, English, Scottish and German bloodlines" but
particularly the "rich Aboriginal tradition with the Dharawal people",
"working with community elders and renewing housing estates", and
"supporting the Australian Pacific and Maori Community Services
volunteer patrols".

government and how these initiatives are expected to impact on local

Social Justice Thought For The Week

"Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves, each looking out not for his/her  own interests, but (also) everyone for those of others. Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped." ( Saint Paul to the Philippians: 2 :3-6 )
