This guide was created to support the period of Lent and our annual Project Compassion fundraiser. Caritas Australia is Hope in Action. As the international aid and development agency of the Australian Catholic Church, we are driven by social justice and the dignity of every person. For each of the six weeks of Lent, we celebrate a new hero, who has overcome incredible odds to become a leader in their community. Thanks to the support of the Australian public, in 2019-20 Caritas Australia reached 3.6 million people worldwide including Australia, to end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.
