The vision for the Inclusion initiative is that every person from every ‘tribe and nation’ and from every perspective, situation and orientation is welcomed, included and represented in the Catholic Church.
This means developing intentional pathways of inclusion that invite people from all walks of life to journey toward the Eucharistic centre, and for those that don’t wish to walk this journey, we are intentional about listening and understanding their story so they know that they are loved and valued.
We invite you to join with us in creating an inviting, inclusive church by engaging with the projects and initiatives we have on offer.
If you’d like to be part of a network of people who are passionate about creating a more inclusive church community, you’re invited to join the Inclusion & Community Life Network (ICLN).
The ICLN is for parishes, faith communities and interested individuals to participate in networking events, access professional development resources, and receive one-to-one support.

This resource book was written in 2003 to assist faith communities to reflect on their capacity to be communities in which people with disability are integral members.
It is designed to build confidence in individuals and communities to develop the necessary actions that ensure that people with disability have every opportunity for full participation in their faith community.
The Queensland Faith Communities Council (QFCC) celebrates our wonderful and ever growing diversity and encourages all in the Sunshine State to build strong, respectful and inclusive communities. One very enjoyable way of doing this is by sharing food. However, as many cultural and religious traditions have certain dietary requirements, it can sometimes be tricky knowing what foods to serve. <br> <br>
Therefore QFCC has put together this little booklet. Of course, individuals within a tradition may adhere more or less strictly to their particular dietary requirements. If you know your guests well, it is a simple matter of asking them! This could lead to some very interesting conversations. QFCC Website: www.qfcc.org.au
