On the Road with Caritas


Bringing the Gospel to life in a wounded world.

After over a year of lockdown, join us 'in the flesh' at a parish near you to:

  • Seize the opportunity build the Common Good
  • Listen for how God is calling you to live the Gospel
  • Join with others to let the Kingdom of God break in.

As Covid-19 retreats, the coast will soon be clear for mission. The world will be different from what we knew before lockdown, and so are our parishes.

On the road with Caritas is an opportunity to discover our next step in working together and mobilising our parishes to reach out to this wounded world. Four dates are planned so far, and more may be added:

  • Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland: 25 September 2021
  • Derby, Derbyshire, High Peak and Burton: 2 October 2021
  • Nottingham and Nottinghamshire: 16 October 2021
  • Lincoln and Lincolnshire: 23 October 2021

We'll use a central venue in each area, which will be announced soon. The workshops run from around 10.30 until 3.30 p.m. They will of course be subject to the best advice available at the time on Covid-19.

We will use an adapted version of the Here: Now: Us Saturday workshop. What we come up with will then feed into the first-ever diocesan Caritas conference on 20 November 2021 – more on that soon – and also into a workshop for your parish if you’d like one.
