Share in the world’s resources

Project Compassion 2020 Appeal: Message from Deacon Jim Curtain, Diocesan Director of Caritas Australia

We here at Caritas understand that many in our community will have financial concerns, worries about health, and worries about their future due to the COVID19 crisis. We do appreciate that many generous people who would normally give may no longer be in a position to do so. However through Project Compassion we support people and communities in countries that have nothing like the resources of Australia, where governments do not have the ability to provide social welfare payments or subsidise employers to keep people in work. Bearing in mind the uncertainty that we are all experiencing, we would still ask that, if you are able, you consider continuing to support Project Compassion as best you can.

Thank you for your generosity in the past, and for whatever you feel able to give now.

Project Compassoin 2020

PROJECT Compassion this Lent, asks us to consider how we can go further with our global neighbours in love and compassion.

How can we give of ourselves and fast this Lent so that others may have a just share in the world’s resources.

One way we can help is through the Project Compassion.

Lenten donation boxes or envelopes are available in the narthex.

Please collect your preferred method of giving when leaving Mass.

Boxes can be returned on Easter Sunday, and envelopes are returned each week and included with the second collection.
