COVID-19 Update from Father Hudsons Care

Good Shepherd Appeal


Help us reach more people in need by supporting our Good Shepherd Appeal 2021

This year the Good Shepherd Appeal is leaving the classroom.

Traditionally, each Lent schoolchildren all over the Archdiocese raise money for Father Hudson’s Care. It is one of our oldest appeals dating back to when children would collect coins during the early days of the charity and is now one of our biggest and most vital fundraising campaigns.

As many children are not able to take part in the Good Shepherd Appeal with their friends at school, we are inviting children and their families, with their supporting schools, to join our community of fundraisers.

We would like to share with you a range of weekly resources highlighting the incredible work of Father Hudson’s Care which you can learn about at home. These include a Stations of the Cross presentation and school assembly in audio format for you to share. Should you wish to fundraise we also have a range of ideas and materials for you to use and would love to hear your ideas, stories and pictures. 

Thank you so much for your support
