In light of the cost of living crisis, Cardinal Vincent Nichols has issued a statement highlighting the importance of Catholic Social Teaching and the need to advocate for the inherent dignity of every person. In reflecting on the material and pastoral needs of the poor, Cardinal Vincent encourages and echoes the central ethos and work of Caritas Plymouth. He reminds us that there are many Catholics in public life and in the charitable sector who are engaged in trying to produce long-term solutions to these political and economic challenges. Caritas Plymouth remains committed to developing charitable projects here in the Diocese of Plymouth that seek to uphold Gospel values and the principle of serving the common good.

We will be holding a free event in Poole on 12 November for World Day of the Poor to reflect on the current challenges and how we can respond. All are welcome. Registration essential.
