Caritas

Our aim is to assist parishes to find and reach out to people with intellectual disabilities, and to help them to find a place at the heart of the parish.

Our work is guided by our chaplain, Father Michael Daley.

'Our task is to translate Christ's message of inclusion into practical action so that people with intellectual disabilities can participate fully in the life of the Church.'

 

So what is this practical action? Three main areas:

  • training through our 'Symbols of Faith' course
  • support and advice on liturgies for Inclusive Masses
  • spiritual and social events at parish level as well as international, by joining the Diocese of Westminster's pilgrimage to Lourdes every two years.

Special Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes and St Vincent de Paul Church, Harrow Road
at 3pm on Sunday 10th June

Inclusive Mass at St Mary's Church, East Finchley at 10.00am on Sunday 1st July

Inclusive Mass at St Monica's Church, Palmers Green at 6pm on Saturday 7th July
