2022 Assembly


RENATE member, Sr. Viktorija and her ministry of awareness-raising and prayer against Human Trafficking and Exploitation.


When people ask what can they do to help in the fight against Human Trafficking, I think of the variety of activities underway throughout the RENATE network, which both inform and inspire.
From screening the ‘RENATE film Giving Voice to the Voiceless, to running fashion shows which heighten our consciousness of the exploitation of workers in the clothing industry; from staging the UN GiftBox roadshow through to art exhibitions, films festivals  and world youth events, there is an ever-increasing array of options for pro-active people to become actively engaged in the fight against Human Trafficking.
Another example of positive action is that undertaken by RENATE member, Sr. Viktorija Šimić, from Croatia. Whilst a teacher by profession, Sr. Viktorija leaves no stone unturned when it comes to ensuring her students and their families understand the risks and dangers of Human Trafficking and exploitation.
In the wider Parish and Diocesan level, Sr. Viktorija has already given more than fifty (50) talks at Parish and community level throughout Croatia, on the topic of Human Trafficking and Exploitation.  Her talks are respectfully presented in the cradle of Mass and prayer, where congregations can feel they are making their personal contribution through the power of prayer.  
Sr. Viktorija continues her ministry at weekends, available to all who invite her to share.
