Connect2: Join the journey...

"I’d say to any parish thinking about Connect2 – ‘give it a try!’ We’ve held coffee mornings and raffles that have also brought our parish together. We’re two communities working and praying together.”

- Linda Swarbrick, St Mary’s parish, Preston

What is Connect2?

Connect2 is your chance to take a journey with ordinary people leading extraordinary lives, by fundraising as a Parish community.

The money you raise will support our work in your partner community and in other communities like theirs throughout their country. You really can help transform lives.

How does it work?

  • With your parish, choose a country to Connect2 - Cambodia, Brazil, El Salvador, Ethiopia or Peru.
  • You’ll 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.
