World Day of the Poor

In Pope Francis' message for the annual World Day of the Poor, he calls every Christian to become “personally involved” in the struggle against poverty. Read the message.

In our Archdiocese, parishes are encourage to have a special Collection for the World Day for the Poor, which is optional, and will take place in parishes on Sunday 19 November.

Monies received will go to the Fife Furniture Project, which is run by volunteers the Society of St Vincent de Paul.

It has helped hundreds of people across the Archdiocese, many in desperate situations, by providing basic furniture and white goods for tenants.
