The Bishop’s Care Appeal 2022

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.
