What is Connect2?
Connect2 is an opportunity for your parish to connect to a community abroad. It enables you to learn about life in that community – hearing directly from people in developing countries who are working hard, often against the odds, to improve their lives – and to build relationships with ordinary people leading extraordinary lives. It is also an opportunity for you to work together as a parish to show solidarity and support to those communities in other countries, and to really help to transform lives.
How it works
- Your parish will choose a country to Connect2. You can choose Cambodia, Brazil, El Salvador or Ethiopia (find out more about the communities here)
- You will receive stories and photographs from a community in your chosen country
- Over the next few years, local people will share their hopes, dreams, struggles and challenges with you through regular updates
- In return, you can support the community by praying, raising money and sharing news from your parish through photographs, cards and messages of solidarity
The money you raise will support our work in your partner community and in other communities like theirs throughout their country.
