The Caritas Committee at St Charbel’s Parish is closely affiliated with Caritas Australia and Lebanon and supports its activities and initiatives.
Caritas Lebanon has a double-purpose mission:
- Caritas is appointed by the Church to help people in need and restore their human dignity, regardless of their political, religious or social beliefs.
- Caritas seeks to awaken a spirit of solidarity among the Lebanese and to encourage the wealthier segments of society to help the poorest.
The Caritas Committee in our Parish carries out an annual fundraiser on Palm Sunday to support Caritas Lebanon. They also support Caritas Australia with Project Compassion during lent.
A warm invitation is extended to all parishioners to join the committee. The coordinators of the Caritas committee are Mr. George Abdallah and Mrs. Mona Abdallah.
For more information about this committee or to make a donation, please contact the coordinators or the Parish Office on 9740 0998.
