Opening Prayer

Lord,
No one is a stranger to you
and no one is ever far from your loving care
In your kindness watch over refugees and asylum seekers,
those separated from their loved ones,
those who are lost,
and those who have been exiled from their homes.
Bring them safely to the place where they long to be,
and help us always to show your kindness to strangers and those in need.
Amen.

The essays in this very timely volume, each in its own way, journey with Joseph. The discerning reader will enjoy the richness and variety of Joseph's legacy as seen through the eyes of the writers, who bear the title Josephite and who generously share their knowledge, experience, reflection and prayer of this saint, whom Julian Tenison Woods calls 'the Prince of God's House who was among the poorest of men and hidden with Mary and Jesus' (4 September, 1887)

Australian Council on Children
and the Media (ACCM):

Introducing the ACCM and its latest resources for families

ACCM is Australia’s peak body representing children’s interests as digital and screen media users.  As a not-for-profit national community organisation, we have been providing information, tools and resources to empower families to nurture their children in an increasingly complex media environment for many years.

Today, ACCM, in partnership with the US-based AppCensus group, Macquarie University [Department of Psychology] and the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network ([ACCAN], launches new online resources for parents developed through its project: Apps can track: privacy tips and checks.

The ACCM – AppCensus checks on children’s apps enables parents to know what happens when a child downloads an app; how much of the child’s personal information is requested; what data is actually collected and transferred on; what happens to that data next.

ACCM’s new resources include easy to read tips and checks for safeguarding children’s online privacy; short videos on why this is so important and how to talk to children about this; AppCensus privacy checks on 50 of the top children’s Androids apps currently being used in Australia.

Being an organisation that also is highly committed to the healthy development and protection of our nation’s children, I ask for your support in promoting these resources as widely as possible through your own networks.
