Engage Hearts and Minds: A Toolkit for Refugee ActionIn this toolkit, CAPSA has compiled a range of resources to equip parishes, workplaces and local community groups to get involved. We want to provide people with tools to take the lead in their community and seek out support from CAPSA where needed.
These activities are inspired by the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic faith. As modelled by Pope Francis as our leader, we strive to welcome refugees and migrants to our communities and promote an acceptance of diversity. Our work is now needed more than ever!
