The Caritas invitation

Download the invitation above, which gives you a preview of how Caritas could support you and your parish in mission and outreach.

The document was prepared for an event on 28 March 2020, which is now postponed to 7 November. We'll be revising it to take account of the unfolding impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, find out more opposite about the event in November, and sign up for updates.

"It is one of the desired outcomes of Faith into Action that it will offer parishes and groups ‘ways to discern how God is calling them to grow in missionary discipleship and to take practical steps to respond together’. I commend it you. May this initiative bear much fruit in our diocese and in our greater outreach to others."

Rt Rev Patrick McKinney
Bishop of Nottingham

God is love, and he calls us to love, generously and joyfully. Here in the Diocese of Nottingham an opportunity is emerging to respond to that call afresh.

Nottingham Diocese is on the way to becoming part of the global Caritas network—and if you are a parishioner here, you will be part of it too.

On Saturday 7 November 2020 join Bishop Patrick, Caritas Social Action Network, the diocesan Justice & Peace Commission and people from parishes, chaplaincies and organisations all round our diocese, for a day to:

  • nourish the work we do for the common good
  • be inspired for the adventure of missionary discipleship
  • build our parishes as confident, outward-looking communities
  • make common cause and achieve more together.

In the morning session, starting at 11.00, find out how you can get involved in a renewal of mission in our diocese, from Bishop Patrick and others involved in practical and heartfelt social outreach.

In the afternoon, from 1.30, hear testimonies from people whose faith has inspired them into action here in the East Midlands, and share ideas with others of how we can make a bigger impact together.
