Caritas visits the diocese

On Thursday, 8 March, Fr George Sigamony, Manager of Community Engagement at Caritas Australia, began a five-day visit to the diocese.

Father spent a day in Chisholm Region, visiting St Mary’s Campus, All Saints College, Maitland, and St Joseph’s College, Lochinvar.

Father was the National Director of Caritas Sri Lanka for 18 years and has first-hand experience of the plight of people in countries in need of our assistance.

Because of the generosity of the people of Australia Caritas Australia is able, through Project Compassion each year, to help many people in these countries.

Father continued his visit in the Myall Deanery, speaking at schools and at weekend Masses.

Caritas Australia thanks all for their generosity. Please visit Caritas Australia.
