Our Lady Help of Christians

Our Lady “Help of Christians” plays an important role in Australian Catholicism, as she is considered the Patroness of Australia.

Today, many people today continue to experience poverty, homelessness, in addition to mental health issues and disabilities. Mary, like any other mother, wants to help.

Charitable Works Fund (CWF)

The Charitable Works Fund (CWF) is responsible for collecting funds for the purpose of supporting the charitable and pastoral works of the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney.

It is your charity, the charity of the Sydney Catholic community and your local parish.

Overview

The Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney in collaboration with Sydney Catholic Schools will annually celebrate the historical Australian feast day of Our Lady Help of Christians, by encouraging students to consider donating a cold coin to support our Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney charity, the Charitable Works Fund (CWF).

However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s appeal will be aligned with Social Justice Sunday, with the Feast Day Fundraiser scheduled for Friday, 28 August 2020.

Purpose

The purpose of this initiative is two-fold:

1. Increase Awareness and Devotion to Our Lady Help of Christians
2. Share The Joy of Giving

MATERIALS

To best support you in organising this CWF Schools Appeal, the Catholic Archdiocese will be creating a suite of materials for Primary and Secondary schools to use. Using these materials are optional.
