You can help change lives for the better.

Your donation gives your neighbours and community connection, love and support when they need it most.

Catholic Care provides welcoming places for everyone in our community to come for practical assistance, information, acceptance, or simply to connect with others.

No matter who they are, where they’re from, or what circumstances life has dealt them, your support means they are never left behind.

Help Catholic Care chaplains give comfort, faith, and hope to people suffering.

In the spirit of St Camillus de Lellis, Catholic Care chaplains lovingly minister in public hospitals and prisons throughout Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains, providing emotional, spiritual, and sacramental support to people in their darkest days. Their presence eases burdens, lifts spirits, and brings hope, especially in times of serious illness or trauma.

We invite you to continue Jesus Christ’s healing presence and ministry, with a gift to help our 15 Catholic Care chaplains to care for the isolated, incapacitated, seriously ill, elderly, and dying.

With your generous support and prayers, our chaplains can continue to provide the healing gift of presence and bring the love and light of our Lord to people in pain and distress. Your compassion will enable them to listen with the ear of the heart, and offer personal connection and spiritual guidance.

“If you are called to serve, if you have a heart to listen, it’s a great way to be the hands and feet of the Lord.”

As a chaplain at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Abraham George is there with the gift of presence for families in need of prayer, companionship, and a listening ear.

“I will never forget Lucy,* a little girl diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. Her family didn’t know what to do, except rely on God. We organised a baptism for Lucy and prayed with her family.

“Remarkably, Lucy recovered, and the family later visited with a handmade card that said, ‘Thank you for praying for me and supporting me and my family. Thank you for your visit and the spirit in which you organised my christening.

“ ‘We will never forget you. Miracles do happen.’ ”

Thank you for supporting our chaplains so they can provide emotional, spiritual, and sacramental support to more seriously ill, lonely, and distraught people in their time of need.

May your blessings be multiplied always.

Very Rev Luis Fernando Montano Rodriguez
Vicar General, Episcopal Vicar for Social Welfare, and Catholic Care Advisory Council Member
