Connect 2

Connect2 is an exciting new way to create solidarity across the world. When your parish joins, you’ll hear directly from people in developing countries who are working hard, often against the odds, to improve their lives. This is their chance to tell you themselves, in their own words, about how your support is changing their lives. You’ll get to know the local people and discover how our partners are making a difference. We are thrilled to announce that Coonect2 has now reached 100 donating parishes!

How does it work?

You and your parish choose a country to Connect2. To begin the journey, you’ll receive photos and stories from your chosen community. Over the next few years, you can look forward to regular updates from different local people, as they share their struggles, hopes and dreams with you in their own words. In return, you can share news from your parish and community life, through photos, cards and messages of solidarity.

It’s a personal journey between your parish and the community you support; a chance to be a part of that community’s life in the longer term.

Fundraising

Any money you raise will support our work in the community and others like them, in the country you choose. Over time you’ll see and hear how your support changes lives.
