Centacare expands into Child Care Centacare to partner with Catholic Education for new Child Care Services
entacare Tasmania commences 2010 with its new Child Care services opening in four Catholic schools around the State. The Church engages in Christ’s mission of spreading the Gospel in a variety of ways and Catholic Education and Centacare Tasmania serve the Archdiocese of Hobart in support of that mission. Archbishop Adrian Doyle recently announced the commencement of Centacare Tasmania’s Child Care Services in partnership with our Catholic Schools. The four schools involved in this exciting partnership are: Corpus Christi Catholic School in Bellerive, Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School in Deloraine, Holy Rosary Catholic School in Claremont and St Cuthberts Catholic School in Lindisfarne. “The cooperation of individual Catholic schools and Centacare Tasmania in this important ministry will provide a service based on the dignity of each person, the common good, and the needs of the poor and the disadvantaged,” said Archbishop Doyle. “Parents and children of participating Catholic schools will have outside school hours care available to them before school, after school and during vacations.” It is hoped that all-day care will be available at a later stage. The care provided will meet the requirements of the Department of Education (Tasmania), the Department of Employment, Education and Workplace Relations (Australia), and the National Child Care Accreditation Council. This service will take account of the circumstances of the parents of the children

“We will be offering child care to those families who’ve traditionally been unable to afford it” while at the same time not disadvantaging others. Melanie (Mel) Kean, formerly the Director of Child Care Services at Corpus Christi Catholic School, has agreed to take on the role of State Coordinator of Centacare Tasmania Child Care Services. She commenced in November. “Having my daughter, Ava, in child care gives me a unique insight into the views of the parents using our services, their concerns, their wishes and their aspirations for their children,” said Ms Kean, who also understands that quality family time is something that families are constantly striving for. “We will be offering child care to those families who’ve traditionally been unable to afford it,” said Ms Kean.
“And all staff working at Centacare Child Care centres will be fully trained, through Willson Training,” said Ms Kean. Existing employees of the Archdiocese employed to provide child care services will be retained in their employment by the Archdiocese and transferred to Centacare Tasmania Child Care Services while continuing to provide child care services at our schools. There will be no adverse impact on the staff in relation to their wages and conditions. As a result of this partnership, and the capacity for staff to participate in the broader child care network of Centacare Tasmania Child Care Services, training and development opportunities, formation opportunities and networking opportunities will be provided. This will enable staff to improve their skills and knowledge in the child care industry and to gain a full understanding of child care services as part of the mission of the Church. Centacare Tasmania Child Care Services and the Catholic schools are committed to the provision of high quality Outside School Hours Care for the benefit of parents and children that meet the standards of the National Child care Accreditation Council. Centacare Tasmania Child Care Services is in discussions with other Catholic Schools in Tasmania to offer the same opportunities to school communities, parents and their children.

CWL volunteer ambassador for ovarian cancer prevention P
atricia Brown of the Catholic Woman’s League NSW teamed up with comedienne Jean Kittson, to be one of Ovarian Cancer Australia’s, 11th Hour Ambassadors, delivering an important health message: “Don’t leave learning the symptoms of ovarian cancer until the 11th hour!” The majority of Australian women are largely unaware about ovarian cancer in comparison to breast and cervical cancer and assume a Pap smear also tests for ovarian cancer. It does not. Patricia Brown, who is a volunteer for St Vincent de Paul Society and the Catholic Woman’s League, is one of the 11th Hour Ambassadors for the campaign.
Patricia Brown said, “If, by working with Ovarian Cancer Australia, we can help save the life of just one woman, then we will have helped to make a difference,” Patricia Brown said. Nearly all sufferers of ovarian cancer have symptoms, and if detected in the early stages the majority of women will be alive and well after five years. Currently, 75% of sufferers are diagnosed in the advanced stages and do not live beyond five years. The aim of this campaign is to inform women about what is believed to be a ‘silent killer’ and to be aware that in actual fact it is not silent. If only women knew the symptoms, they could listen to their body and not join

Will you do The Reflection this Easter? T
he Church gives us a wonderful period of preparation and journey in the Lenten weeks preceding Easter. But, Lent can seem â€œheavyâ€? in comparison to the anticipation and excitement of preparing for Christmas. For many of us growing up, Lent meant a time of â€œsacrificeâ€?. Simply giving up something for Lent, without welcoming a whole spirituality can leave us dreading Lent, more than looking forward to it. This Lenten season, bring to your family, parish group or community the same Lenten hope that the liturgy of the Church expresses. Instead of â€œgiving something upâ€? why not, â€œtake something upâ€? â€“ and share in a wonderful experience for your family or community group. In preparation for Easter 2010, the Australian Catholic Bishopsâ€™ Conference invites you to partake in an exciting and unique journey. Each week during Lent, the Bishops of Australia will be sharing their thoughts and reflections on the Sunday Gospels leading to Easter. This innovative programme, The Reflection, is an Internet based resource that will comprise six short pre-recorded segments (one for each week of Lent 2010). Each segment will follow a lectio divina process for the forthcoming Sunday of Lent (an exploration of the Gospel through reflection and prayer). The segments will be posted online each week, starting the Monday prior to Ash Wednesday â€“ February 15, 2010.
A final segment will be posted during Holy Week and will involve a small number of Bishops and lay people who will share their thoughts and reflections of their Lenten journey around the celebration of an Easter meal. It is hoped this final segment (appropriate to the Season) will reflect the warmth, invitation, sharing and community that has been built through peopleâ€™s â€˜getting togetherâ€™ in their own homes over the seven-week period. We all understand that life doesnâ€™t stop during Lent â€“ it relentlessly marches on with work, sporting commitments, school plays, weddings etc. This coming year why not plan to spend some quality time with those around you as you journey to Easter? As the Church family welcomes its new members with open arms at Easter, letâ€™s take up the challenge and invite others to come to our table to share. The website www.thereflection.vividas.com is online, keeping you informed of this exciting programme. For any further information please contact Annie Carrett, Diocese Broken Bay, (02) 9847 0724 or email@example.com
