Centacare Catholic Country SA, Diocese of Port Pirie’s vision for Reconciliation is to build and develop a shared understanding of Reconciliation. We aim to recognise, acknowledge and respect the oldest living practicing cultures that continue to survive in human history today.
Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia that celebrates diversity, upholds equality and recognises and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.
Centacare Catholic Country SA affirms the identity and belonging of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the First Australians and within the framework afforded by Catholic Social Teaching, we are committed to working in respectful ways with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to enhance their lives and rights as First Australians in our communities. Our Organisation aims to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, and promote an understanding and appreciation of past and contemporary histories, cultures and spirituality. We aim to affirm the knowledge and wisdom, and enrich appreciation of Australia’s histories, cultures, languages, values and beliefs. We further aim to engage and sustain the participation and employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as a core part of our activities.
