Caritas Poverty Event
‘The hope of the poor shall not perish for ever’
This is the theme of Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day of the Poor on Sunday 17 November 2019. Caritas Plymouth will be holding their third event looking at the causes of poverty and its impact in the run up to the World Day of the Poor.
Speakers include Niall Cooper, Director of Church Action on Poverty, a national Christian social justice charity committed to tackling poverty in the UK and Heather Buckingham, Head of Church Engagement at the Trussell Trust.
The day will include sharing thoughts and ideas about how we in our parishes can mark World Day of the Poor and looking at Pope Francis’ Message. The free event includes a buffet lunch.
