Our Mission

To support parishes in their journey to become missionary communities, reaching out to the those on the margins to share the love and mercy of God with the wider world in practical ways.

Caritas will help parishes, pastoral areas and diocesan groups to develop their own local social action projects which address a defined need in the community. This will most often be a practical need such as homelessness, refugees, asylum seekers, food poverty, mental health, loneliness as well as projects that help care for our common home.

The projects will evangelise Catholic parishes, especially volunteers, and those in the wider community whom they serve, by promoting faith in action and witnessing to the infinite Mercy of God. Opportunities for conversation, achieved through presence and relationship, also have the potential to draw those on the peripheries into a deeper relationship with Christ and his Church.
