Are you interested in the Catholic response to homelessness, welcoming refugees and migrants, assisting with the Cost of Living Crisis, or tackling the causes and effects of climate change? 

The Director of Caritas Diocese of Brentwood is very pleased to announce and invite you to the first Caritas Brentwood networking day, on Saturday 10th June, 10am – 2.30pm, at Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School, Upminster RM14 2QP.

We will be welcomed by Bishop Alan Williams, sm, followed by a keynote from Mr Raymond Friel, OBE, Chief Executive of the Catholic Social Action Network.

Later in the day, we will ask participants to group into areas of interest/focus, these will be the cost of living crisis, the welcome of refugees and migrants, environmental work and those involved with homelessness. Conversations and input will be led by those who know these fields well, and the day will be an opportunity for those attending to network with others and share ideas and good practices, to enrich their own local realities.
