Project Compassion Launch

Caritas Australia invites all friends and supporters to the launch of Project Compassion 2012  at St Mary’s Cathedral, Hobart, at noon on Tuesday, 21st February. The Chairman of the National Council of Caritas Australia, Archbishop Adrian Doyle, will preside at a Liturgy of the Word and Commissioning of Representatives from Catholic Schools and Parishes.

About Project Compassion:

Now in its 47th year, Project Compassion's ongoing success is thanks to the generosity of Caritas supporters. Together we are ensuring the voices of the poor are heard loud and clear.

Now one of Australia's largest humanitarian fundraisers, it brings thousands of Australians in solidarity with the world's poor.

In 2012, Project Compassion carries a simple, yet insightful message: "If you want Peace, work for Justice" – Pope Paul VI. This message of hope remains as powerful as ever.

Each year, Project Compassion runs during Lent, the six weeks leading up to Easter. Starting on Wednesday 22 February (Ash Wednesday) 2012, we are asking people across Australia to help us raise money and offer hope to the millions of families who fight for justice, peace and survival every single day.

Justice and Peace is your doing. Embrace Project Compassion 2012. To donate, please visit Caritas website www.caritas.org.au/projectcompassion
