The Federal Member for Bruce, Julian Hill MP invited Faith and Community Leaders to meet face-to-face with Australian government parliamentarians for the purpose of sharing their concerns.

The forum was hosted by Julian Hill MP and Cr Lana Formoso, the Mayor of Greater City of Dandenong and moderated by Senator Deborah O’Neill, Chair of the Parliamentary Friends of Religious Schools and Faith Communities.

This proved to be a wonderful opportunity for all present to not only share what was happening in their communities but also to listen to others.  What a privilege.  May the positive effects of this event ripple into our community for the good of all.
