ST FRANCIS XAVIER S College Hamilton
hosted the launch of Project
Compassion 2011 on Shrove Tuesday,
the day before Ash Wednesday. This
year's theme is "Partner with us to make
Diocesan Director for Caritas, Catherine
Stace, said, "If each person accepts the
challenge to open their hearts and hands
and make a donation, then communities
have the opportunity to become architects
of their own development. Without
practising solidarity here in our own
country, without our promoting justice
domestically, we will never effectively
change the structures which keep people
trapped in the cycle of poverty."
Guest speaker at the launch was
Nguyet Thi Dinh, activist and Inclusive
Education Program Manager at Catholic
Relief Services in Vietnam. She spoke
passionately of the differences health care,
education and community development
make to the poor of Vietnam.
In the words of Oscar Romero, Bishop
Michael Malone challenged his audience
to 'aspire to be more, not to have more'.
"We are called to action, to stand in
solidarity and be stewards of social justice.
No one can do it alone, but by partnering
together, anything is possible."
