We will bless their journey and pray for them as a community. Please continue to pray for our pilgrims: Luke, Lucy, Sophie, Shanel, Ron, Jes and Nicholas and for those pilgrims going from the Neo-Catechumenal Way

It is the passion and spirit of our supporters across Australia whose generosity of heart enables us to have our hands and feet in marginalised communities across the world.

On behalf of Caritas Australia and the communities we support, thank you to your staff and parishioners for all their fundraising efforts this year.
