Caritas provides resources for prayer and reflection, and inspires action.
Our Community Engagement team meets with a wide variety of communities - including parishes, youth groups, social justice advocates, Māori communities, supporters, tertiary and ethnic chaplaincies and religious orders to work for a world free of poverty and injustice. We work to educate and inform people about the causes of poverty and injustice, and also promote reflection and action for a fair and just world. Special resources are provided each year for Lent, Social Justice Week, St Francis Day and the Day of Prayer for Refugees and Migrants.
Our Advocacy & Research publications keep people up-to-date on development and justice issues, and provide specialist research on key topics. Throughout the year we are also involved in advocacy work – including submissions to government and other institutions.
We can also help with providing speakers and people for workshops, seminars, parish or community events.
