Effective Partnerships Create Solidarity
What is key for a mutually valuable immersion visit?
Caritas Australia is an agency which has fifty years experiences of delivering its work through local and national partnerships in Australia and over 30 of the poorest countries throughout the world.
Our partnerships, whether with marginalised communities as an aid and development agency or with schools engaging in educational and fundraising activities, have great potential if anchored in what Pope John Paul II describes as a "spirituality of communion”. This is an ability to think of our brothers and sisters in the faith within the profound unity of the Mystical Body and therefore as “those who are a part of me”. Our partnerships with communities humble and energise us in our work as part of the social mission of the church.
