What does Caritas stand for?
Caritas may refer to: The Latin term for charity, one of the three theological virtues. Inspired by Catholic faith, Caritas is the helping hand of the Church – reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race or religion, to build a world based on justice and fraternal love.
Caritas shares the mission of the Church. It's an ordered service to the community. Inspired by Gospel values and the Catholic Social Teaching, Caritas responds to disasters, promotes integral human development and advocates on the causes of poverty and conflict.
Caritas is committed to solidarity among all peoples, but particularly with poor people, seeing the world through their eyes, and recognising the interdependence of the human family. Solidarity includes the persevering determination to work for the common good.

Today we had our first EAL coffee afternoon for parents and carers who wanted to meet and greet chat and share tips on their child’s learning journey at OLSK! Parents discussed what they were happy with and had chance to raise any concerns they had. We asked if they would donate and bilingual books for our children or donate their time to read with them in school too! Thanks to all who attended.
What a terrific day we’ve had at the Caritas Ambassadors event. We were so proud of our children as they shared all the amazing work they have done this year with Bishop David and fellow ambassadors. #humandignity #solidarity @BhamDES @BCPP__ @SrJudithRussi

We also wrote our thoughts in a letter to @JamesMorris about the Illegal Migration Bill and how it goes against all dignity of the human person! @JamesMorris, we look forward to your reply! @HolyFamSchCov @SMCPWednesbury @CAFOD @BrumSchOfSanc @SrJudithRussi @BCPP__ 🧡🧡🧡
What an end to Parliament Week! We invited James Morris-our local MP- to our assembly and the Caritas Ambassadors asked him questions about different issues. These included: refugees, the environment, cost of living crisis and education?
