FAMILY POVERTY: A DIOCESE ACTS
Living on a low income is difficult – even more so for families. What are the problems experienced by families on low income? What can we (as Church) do about it – given the importance that we attach to family values?
These are the key questions explored in a set of 5 two hour parish-based workshops.
Could you host a set of meetings in your parish or Churches Together group?
