Peter Gates, Deputy National Director, Catholic Mission

At a time like this, Christ's call to love one another, reinforced by Pope Francis in his teachings, is so important, says our Deputy National Director Peter Gates.

The disasters that have ravaged the planet in the first four months of 2020 may be unprecedented, but it has brought out a familiar spirit of generosity in the Australian and international communities. As we collectively battle the impact of COVID-19, Peter's message is the same as yours and the missionaries who you support: We are still here.

Your partnership matters

In times of hardship, it’s important that we stick together. COVID-19 is having a significant impact on our mission partners and the Church, and it’s vital that we help support the work of mission to the most vulnerable in this time.
