Support me all the day long ... (MIA)
The third reflection on Catherine’ life focuses on what sustained her through the demanding and challenging experiences of her life - Support me all day long
Catherine had an extraordinary faith in the provident care of God in her life but also a tremendous sense of humour. It was this combination of faith and fun that made it possible for her to cope so well and so wholeheartedly with what for many would be impossible.
Today, we live in a world where age profiles, development plans, financial projections, strategic goal setting, insurance cover and so on are all part of new undertakings. It is challenging for us to look at Catherine, who even when her strength and stamina were ebbing was able to embrace new ventures with courage, resolution and enthusiasm and yet in a very humanly appealing way, while staking her utter confidence on the Providence of God.

Helping young Indigenous people find their voice (Australia)
Casey Atkinson is one of many young Indigenous people in Victoria to have benefited from an innovative multimedia and story-telling programme established by Fraynework Multimedia and supported by Mercy Works Inc.
After completing his traineeship in multimedia at Fraynework in 2005, Casey became involved in the Indigital Centre, a project established by Fraynework and supported by Mercy Works Inc. The Centre uses multimedia and the arts to give Indigenous young people a voice in the community and skill development opportunities.
Casey believes the experience at Indigital helped him to grow 'as a musician, as an artist, a sound technician, and as a mentor'... He hopes his music inspires young people to deal in a positive way with the many issues they face in life.
The Indigital Centre is now owned and being run by Casey’s cousin, Gary Saunders, the first young Aboriginal man who helped begin the facility in 2004.
