Parish communities from across the Diocese of Sale have been participating in a pilot program since March 2022, which has enabled participants to attend ‘Shining A Light’ workshops across the six regions of the diocese.

Led by Sr Nicole Rotaru RSM and auspiced by Catholic Social Services Victoria (CSSV), each workshop enabled key parish community participants to be better informed and equipped to respond to domestic and family violence.

To date, seven workshops have been held across the diocese since March, including Sale, Traralgon, Bairnsdale, Warragul, Wonthaggi and twice in Berwick.
