Caritas Plymouth shares in the mission of the Catholic Church. We support the network of social action charities and parishes within the Plymouth Diocese, working in partnership with them to help poor, vulnerable and marginalised people.
To express Christian love for all people through the practical service of those in need, of all faiths and none, by:
- Increasing support to those in need
- Increasing volunteering and befriending
- Making a greater contribution to the common good of society
- Enhancing education and formation within the Christian community, helping people appreciate the importance of sharing, respect, and love in the spirit of the Gospel.
The Caritas Plymouth network is a confederation of local Catholic charities and parishes. The network will provide mutual support, strategic direction, and added value. It will also develop social action projects which address local need or unite parishes for the common good of society.
Caritas Plymouth continues to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and is taking all steps necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the people we help, staff and volunteers while continuing to share ideas about how we can best support those in need.
This page contains guidance for parishes on responding to the Coronavirus. This incorporates material from CSAN and SVP as well as offering details of organisations which are giving grants to local projects at this time. We are also sharing examples of how our parishes and schools have responded to the new needs generated by the pandemic through updates and newsletters.
