Diocesan Charities and Outreach Group Conference

CaptureJoin the Diocesan Charities and Outreach Group on Saturday 2 July from 10am – 2pm at St Bede’s parish hall, Popley Way, Basingstoke RG24 9DX for a special day in celebration of this Extraordinary Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy.  The group is part of the Diocesan Framework for Collaboration and has only just formed.  One of its first actions is to hold this day to provide an opportunity for everyone interested and involved in the work of charitable organisations within our diocese to come together to meet one another and find out more about each other’s work.

Speakers will be drawn from The Medaille Trust, SVP, Apostleship of the Sea, Poitiers Care, Caritas Diocese of Portsmouth and CAFOD.

There will be information stalls as well as brief talks from member organisations illustrating the Corporal Works of Mercy.  We’ll try to provide lots of opportunities for participants to hear what’s going on, ask questions and find out how they can get involved.   It would be great to see you there!

There will be a shared lunch. Please bring a contribution.

Everyone is welcome and a poster for the day can be downloaded from here. Please contact caritas@portsmouthdiocese.org.uk to book your place.
