CARITAS

      2nd May 2021 Fifth Sunday of Easter (B)

WHAT IS CARITAS Salford?
CARITAS was formed in 2010 from the amalgamation of Catholic Children's Rescue Society and Catholic Welfare Societies. The aim of Caritas to make a positive and unconditional difference to the physical , emotional and spiritual needs of all people experiencing social disadvantage and need.

We quote from their website.

We are the official charity of Salford diocese, which reaches from Didsbury to Clitheroe. Our vision is that the lives of all people should be free from poverty, disadvantage and discrimination. Our purpose is to help the most vulnerable children, young people and adults in our communities to transform their lives and fulfil their potential.

Caritas is made from joining up well-established charities in the Diocese, merging to bring forward the work of each. These include Catholic Children’s Rescue Society, Catholic Welfare Societies, St Joseph’s Mission to the Deaf, Catholic Family Care, Justice and Peace and Racial Justice.

Through membership rather than governance, we are linked to Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN) in England and Wales. CSAN is in turn a member of Caritas Europa which is in turn part of Caritas Internationalis a global charity that is constantly campaigning for equality and justice.

The new Beacon Newsletter is available Here.

We hope you enjoy reading about some of the work going on at Caritas to support Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

You will also see in the Beacon that we have launched the Big Sleep In event to be held on the evening of FRIDAY 10th JULY to raise funds and awareness for homeless projects at Cornerstone. This is an alternative to the annual Big Sleep Out, which of course couldn’t take place in April.

For more info, here is the link to our webpage: http://cornerstonecds.org.uk/big-sleep-in/
Also featured are our Young Caritas supporters and an insight into a (pre-lockdown) day in the life of the Lalley Centre.

CARITAS Salford A letter from Mark Wiggin, the Director

 Dear Supporters,                                                                           Maundy Thursday 2020


I hope you and your families are well and keeping safe. I wanted to take this opportunity during Holy Week to write to you and thank you for the support and prayers you give us, which is especially crucial during this time of crisis.


I also want to update you with information on the Caritas Salford response to the Covid-19 crisis: 
 

  • We continue to operate all our front‐line services to the homeless, destitute, elderly people and refugees, including providing food parcels.
  • Staff and volunteers have been redeployed to maintain services affected by self‐isolation and social distancing policy.
  • Accommodation for the homeless has been adjusted to provide single occupancy accommodation.
  • Our Schools’ Service remains open to serve headteachers, staff and pupils alike at this challenging time
  • As I recently told the Tablet, Caritas Salford is coping but each day brings new challenges to deliver services to the most vulnerable. As many of our services ‘go online’ to protect people during this period of lockdown, many vulnerable people will not receive the help they desperately need.

    We have received many deliveries of food, offers of support and prayers but the need will not diminish. I would be most grateful if you could please share this link for financial donations to Caritas with your contacts who may wish to consider supporting us.

    Useful Information included below:
     
  • Contact details for the Local Authority Hubs across the diocese. These have been set up to support the most vulnerable and needy. This information has been included in the Beacon.   
  • A list of contacts for Caritas Services operating across the Diocese.
  •  
    Staying in touch 
    For those with access to social media, please keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for our latest news and Thought For The Day slide. 

    I do hope you will enjoy reading the Spring Edition of the Beacon below. This now also has a new look on our website and is available
    here

    On behalf of Bishop John, the Trustees and all at Caritas, I would like to wish you and your families a healthy and holy Easter.

    God bless and keep well,
     

    Mark Wiggin.
    Director, Caritas Diocese of Salford.
