Centacare Sunday 2021

This weekend we celebrate the works of Centacare, the social service arm of our Diocese.

Centacare Professional Family and Community Services was established in Bathurst by the Bishop and Trustees of the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst in 1988, to provide a range of social welfare services to children and families across the region (which extends from Lithgow in the south to Coonamble in the north, Cowra in the west and Rylstone in the east - this is an area of some 100,000 square kilometres).

Centacare assists thousands of people across our region, through nearly 20 different programs and services. Its work is our Diocese’s response to Christ’s exhortation to love our neighbour and care for the poor and disadvantaged in our community.

If you want to find out more about Centacare or how you can support this important mission of the church by tax deductible donation, please call 63318944 or 1800 231 118.

We thank you for your prayers and support.

Centacare Prayer

Blessed are you, Lord of mercy and love,
who through your Son gave us a marvellous example of charity
and the great commandment of love for one another.

Send your blessings upon us so that when we are called on in times of need,
we will faithfully show your light and love to our neighbour. 

May we go forward confident in the intercession of our mother Mary,
and in the name of our creating, liberating and ever loving God.
