Freedom to live for refugees and people seeking asylum

The Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) is about compassion for people seeking asylum. Co-convened by Jesuit Social Services and Jesuit Refugee Service Australia (JRS), CAPSA is an alliance of individuals, organisations, schools and parishes from across the Catholic community who advocate for fair and humane treatment for people seeking asylum in Australia. Each year, CAPSA holds a National Week of Prayer and Action (NWPA) to engage the Australian Catholic community to take action and stand in solidarity with people seeking asylum.

NWPA 2023 will run from Monday 4th September 2023 to Friday 8th September. Throughout the week, we will feature a range of resources, events and stories.
