Caritas Australia’s Advent calendar: solidarity with people living in poverty

Thursday 27 November 2014
 
AS Christmas approaches you can learn, pray and act each day during Advent with Caritas Australia’s interactive multimedia Advent calendar.

Caritas Australia, the Catholic Church’s agency for international aid and development, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Caritas Australia’s global education coordinator for resources and partnerships, Kate Andréo, said the stories, videos and reflections featured in the 2014 Advent calendar highlight this journey of solidarity with the world’s most vulnerable communities, from our beginnings in 1964, to Onesta Carpene’s work in Cambodia in the 1970s–90s, through Archbishop Oscar Romero’s work in Latin America in the 1980s, to present-day programs supporting people like Pa Bros, who is part of the Maryknoll Deaf Development Program, the only course of its kind for deaf adults in Cambodia.
