2019 Christmas Appeal

Before we know it, Christmas is here! The decorating, love, joy and giving celebrate
the wonder of the incarnation – God with us. Matthew’s Gospel highlights:

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”, which means “God with us”.

Thousands of times each year Carinity chaplains share God’s saving love as they give
the “gift of presence” to people in hospitals, prisons and schools, and those receiving
aged care. The gift of presence is at the very heart of the Christmas story.

The cost to keep one volunteer hospital chaplain “in the field” is around $17,000 annually.
Your donations will help us to continue and expand this vital work, especially to those
living in aged care communities and the frail elderly living at home.

We hope you can support the 2019 Christmas Appeal by donating online or by phoning (07) 3550 3737.

Thank you for making it possible to give that gift through our chaplaincy team, and our wider mission in Christ’s name to make a real difference to people in need.
