For all future generations
Caritas Australia’s annual Project Compassion campaign will be kicked off in schools and parishes throughout the State at the end of the month.
Project Compassion Sunday will be celebrated in all parishes on February 27 to mark the start of the Lenten campaign, with local ambassadors commissioned to promote the appeal.
Archbishop Patrick O’Regan will launch the campaign in schools at St Francis of Assisi School, Newton, on Tuesday March 1.
Caritas diocesan director, Tracey Tessitore, said Project Compassion could help change the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
“We are so grateful that parishioners around the Archdiocese are putting up their hands and volunteering to be ambassadors for the appeal,” she said. “Their efforts will really make a difference.”
This year’s theme for the campaign is ‘For all future generations’ and is taken from the scripture passage ‘When God gave his covenant to Noah and every living creature, for all future generations’.
Five stories of people benefiting from Caritas programs are shared over the season of Lent.
The main story this year is of 12-year-old Anatercia from Mozambique and other stories include Biru from India, Janice from Australia, Rosalie from the DRC, and Shaniella from the Solomon Islands. Visit www.caritas.org.au/project-compassion/
