Resources

Caritas provides resources for educators, students, parishes, social justice advocates, researchers and for prayer.

Our resources support our mission to educate and inform people about the causes of poverty and injustice. They also promote reflection and action for a fair and just world.

Special resources are provided each year for Lent, Social Justice Week, Waitangi Day and the Day of Prayer for Refugees and Migrants.

Our publications keep people up-to-date on development and justice issues, and provide specialist research on key topics. Submissions to government and other institutions are also online.
