The annual Lent appeal is run by Caritas on behalf of the NZ Catholic Bishops.
It enables Caritas to respond immediately to emergencies, help communities meet their basic survival needs and to advocate for justice to influence attitudes and create change.
Last year, your support of the Bishops’ Lent Appeal meant that over $1 million was raised from parishes across the country.
Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand is the Catholic agency for justice, peace and development, charged by New Zealand’s Bishops to provide a compassionate Catholic response to poverty and injustice locally and around the world.
Caritas Internationalis is a network of 165 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations working in over 200 countries territories worldwide.
