PACT Volunteers needed for

supporting Prisoners

Over the past year, our volunteers have dedicated over 65,000 hours of their time to Pact, providing vital support to prisoners, people with convictions and their families. We have a variety of exciting volunteering opportunities available across England and Wales, including mentoring, befriending, supporting people in court, working in prison visitors' centres to support children and families visiting loved ones, on our national helpline and many more. If you feel you can make a difference and would like to volunteer please contact us or click here. Coronavirus Appeal In recent days, among our dispersed CAFOD teams, planning our global response to Coronavirus, some words from St Paul have come to mind: faith, hope and love. We are facing an unprecedented emergency in every country we work in; and we are also mindful, each day, of people in our own Catholic community here in England and Wales who are unable to attend Mass; people worried and overstretched; of those who have tragically lost loved ones, and of those who were already enduring loneliness and are now in isolation. We need to respond in faith, hope and love. And so in faith, hope and love, we are reaching out to you. Coronavirus is affecting every country we work in. The poorest and excluded are most vulnerable. Food prices have risen with borders closing; the poorest are losing their jobs and income with wholesale shutdowns. As you can imagine, the outlook is very serious in places where healthcare is inadequate, and washing regularly and social distancing are luxuries. Half the world’s population can’t access basic healthcare, and already struggle to feed their families; and they now face the threat of hunger as the coronavirus shuts down markets and jobs.

The following message is

directly from Fr Anthony

Chantry, Missio National

Director

Through prayer and witness, Pope Francis has been walking alongside the whole global community. He has also made a special Appeal for financial support for the Church around the world which is struggling to cope with the effects of COVID-19. He has asked Missio to administer this Appeal. I am writing to ask for their prayerful and financial support. I know that it is a difficult time for everyone, and I do not want to burden people. However, I am sure that many people will want to help where they can. Thank you for your continued support, especially in these difficult days. May the risen Lord continue to guide us with hope.
