Catholic Care Parish Representatives

Parish representatives are building a bridge between each parish and Catholic Care to ensure:

They don’t want to even consider what Christmas will look like, as they just try to get through another month, counting down the days with less money in their pockets.

  • Regular contact is maintained between your Parish and Catholic Care
  • Your Parish is fully aware of what Catholic Care are doing in the Diocese of Leeds
  • Catholic Care can support the needs of your Parish and its outreach work
  • Opportunities for voluntary work are promoted

What will I do as a Catholic Care Parish Representative?

Parish Representatives help promote the charitable work of Catholic Care. Here are some ideas of how you can help promote our work in your parish:

  • Keep your Parish and community informed of Catholic Care news and events
  • Arrange for one of our staff or volunteers to visit your Parish or local school to speak about our work.
  • Help raise awareness and support our appeals and campaigns.
  • Engage with parishioners to find what services we could provide for them.

We do not normally require a DBS check for our Parish representatives, but we will ask that you obtain the consent of your Parish Priest.
