It’s crucial that as many people as possible - your friends, family and parish community - hear about the appeal and petition.

Some ways you can do this:

  • Add a prominent link to the Coronavirus Appeal on your parish website.
  • Mention the appeal in the parish bulletin.
  • Add a short verbal notice at the end of your parish online Mass, if you have one.
  • Talk about the appeal with your networks in the parish and via WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, email etc.

Set up a JustGiving Page

We have prepared an easy guide to help you do this.
