There is a long tradition for organising Caritas collections among the congregations in the Catholic churches. The financial support by the collections is of great importance for Caritas’ work as it constitutes a large part of Caritas’ financal foundation.
The collections are organised by Caritas’ local representatives in all the congregations with the assistance of Caritas’ Secretariat. The collections benefit a new project each time, selected on the basis of need.
Caritas Denmark organises three collections each year:
- Lent collection
- Last Sunday in August collection
- Advent collection – starting on the 19th November, The Day of the Poor
