The CatholicCare Foundation
The CatholicCare Foundation is the welfare arm of the Bunbury Diocese. Financial assistance is provided by the foundation to Apostolates within the diocese, enabling them to provide assistance to people in need.
Some of the apostolates which have already received assistance include Centrecare, Pregnancy Assistance, Stella Maris Mission to Seafarers, St Vincent de Paul Society and the SJOG South West Community Alcohol and Drug Service.
Funds are raised for the foundation through two annual appeals.
Bishop Gerard’s Appeal for CatholicCare is held during the lead up to Christmas each year, and our diocesan Catholic Schools all participate in an annual “Free Dress – Gold Coin” day. Many thousands of dollars have been raised via these two annual appeals and the generous support of parishioners and catholic school families makes the CatholicCare motto “People Helping People” a reality.
Donations can be made to CatholicCare at any time by contacting the Diocesan Office on 97210 500.
