Caritas Marathon Walk

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

This year St. Joseph’s Welfare Befriending service celebrates forty years of working with elderly people in North Manchester and in some of the poorest wards in the country such as Collyhurst and Harperhey. Caritas Elderly Befriending service supports elderly people which need help with there shopping or just someone to chat with.

We are raising funds for Caritas Elderly Befriending service in North Manchester by hosting a Nearly Marathon Walk around the North Manchester deanery visiting all the parish churches along the way.

The Marathon Walk will take place on Saturday 7th November 2015 and will start at St Malachy's Church in Collyhurst at 7:30am

You Are Never Too Young To Care

The Little Church, a group of young children and their parents from Our Lady of the Valley Parish, Clitheroe have raised £21.05 for the Refugee Response following their cake sale last Sunday in Sabden. The groups response is a great reminder that there is no age limit to showing how much you care about others. Helping children to understand that caring for others is an important part of their faith and that every little act of kindness helps to make a difference is part of the Little Church ethos. The proceeds from the cake stall will go directly to supporting refugees in the Diocese of Salford.  A big thank you to all involved from Caritas Diocese of Salford.


Statement on the Refugee Crisis

Caritas Diocese of Salford will work in solidarity with the many Catholic, voluntary and statutory organisations to share our expertise and to help those in great need. We will work especially closely with Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN) the domestics social action arm of the Church. 


‘Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me (Mt 25:40)’

At last Sunday's Angelus, Pope Francis invited every parish, religious house and monastery in Europe to respond to the growing refugee crisis by offering a place of sanctuary to families fleeing from war and persecution in their home countries. The Pope calls on our generosity and solidarity to recognise and act upon our common humanity. 



Calling All Volunteers!

Caritas’ Family Project is now recruiting. The Family Project works in partnership with families and individuals to identify key issues in their family life and build on their strengths using a variety of approaches.

The support a volunteer can give is astounding - from keeping families safe, healthy, confident and less isolated to encouraging their personal development and giving them the advice and support necessary for them to lead a more fulfilled life.

If you have any time to spare, no matter how much or how little - please do get involved. The donation of your time is the greatest gift that you can give to some of the people that the Family Project helps.
