The Bishop’s Care Appeal

The Bishop’s Care Appeal was started by Archbishop Paul Martin SM to raise money during advent so that charitable work can be carried out in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Since its launch in 2018, the Care Appeal has supported numerous charitable initiatives, and made a difference to the lives of many individuals and families.

Areas of support include, providing food, housing, counselling, and other resources to those in need. Financial assistance is also given to continue the good work of volunteers, community service staff, chaplains and social workers who serve members of our community.

during the season of Advent

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

With Advent approaching, my thoughts and prayers go to our community; that you all remain safe in God’s hands.

With the impact of COVID and its variants it is important that we remain connected with one another and share our love and kindness to those around us.

Advent is a time of reflection and gratitude. We can also remember those in our community who may feel alone and isolated.

The Care Appeal 2021 is an opportunity to care for the vulnerable members of our society who are suffering and in need of love and support.

Through the Holy Spirit, we can work together to lend a hand to those suffering, and continue the works of Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Please join me and give generously.
