National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is held each year from 27 May to 3 June. This year’s theme is Be a Voice for Generations, which encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in our everyday lives. To be a voice for reconciliation today means the start of real change tomorrow. 

The CEWA Office RAP Working Party are also acknowledging Sorry Day on Friday, 26 May 2023 with a prayer and reflection session for staff, and the CEWA Office in Leederville will again be lighting up in purple to mark the anniversary of the Bringing Them Home Report in the Australian Parliament in 1997. 

Echoing the message from CEWA Office RAP (Reconciliation Action Plan) document, committee head Tanya Davies said:,  

‘National Reconciliation Week is a time for us to build on relationships, with this year’s theme of Be a Voice for Generations encouraging us all to use our power and words to create a better, more just Australia for all of us.’ 

‘The CEWA Offices currently has an Innovate RAP, with our vision for reconciliation being one of mutual respect and deep solidarity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and those with differing heritage. In accordance with Catholic Social Teaching, we are communities faithful to recognising the dignity of all people by healing the hurts and wrongs of the past and being present in a spirit of mercy, love, justice, forgiveness and peace.’
