COVID-19 Update from Father Hudsons Care

Good Shepherd Appeal


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

Thank you for your interest in our Good Shepherd Appeal.

Traditionally, each Lent school children 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.

We hope that schools across the Archdiocese will join us by taking part. All schools who have registered will be sent specially designed envelopes to collect their donations at the start of Lent. If you would like to take part and would like to receive these then please complete the registration form below.

This year, at the end of the appeal, we hope to return to celebrating Mass at a number of churches across the Archdiocese. Attendance at Mass will be limited to one school only in closest proximity to the church. We plan to celebrate Mass in Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent, Wolverhampton, Worcester and Oxford. These will also be available online. Venues and dates of these Masses will be shared shortly.

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

Thank you so much for your support
