During this last year or more, most of us have experienced what is perhaps an unprecedented time of isolation and perhaps loneliness and sadly, even depression. This perhaps gives us some empathy with the thousands of impoverished citizens of our planet who have little choice but to endure this isolation for months on end, year in and year out crewing ships which bring us well over 90% of the goods we buy. They do this to send back their meagre wages to support their families back home who are equally separated from them.

The trustees of Caritas Diocese of Salford are pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick O’Dowd, as its next Director, appointed to succeed Mark Wiggin, who retires after 11 years of service this month. All in the diocese wish Mark a happy retirement and look forward to continuing to support the work of Caritas alongside Patrick.
