With the 2024 theme, ‘For All Future Generations’, Project Compassion aims to create lasting change for people living in some of the most vulnerable and low-income regions in the world. This year’s launch at Academy of Mary Immaculate, Fitzroy, brought together student leaders from schools across the Archdiocese of Melbourne as part of their commitment to support this important fundraiser.

‘I want to say to all of you here today, and to myself, to all of us: we are all called, chosen and sent’, said Archbishop Peter at the launch this week. ‘And we can do this by our love that is in service to others. Project Compassion is a way, it’s one way, but a way of saying that we have been called and chosen and sent to love and serve those in need.’

Fundraising events for Project Compassion have also begun in schools across the Archdiocese. At Mount St Joseph Girls’ College, Altona, student leaders and the Youth in Action team organised pancakes and hot chocolate on Shrove Tuesday to start raising funds for this important cause.
