"The measure of the greatness of a society is found in the way it treats those most in need, those who have nothing but their own poverty"
Pope Francis, March 2013
Welcome to the homepage of Caritas Diocese of Westminster (CDOW), the social action agency of the Diocese of Westminster set up to identify and address poverty and exclusion in our community.
Through supporting parish-based social action initiatives, collabotating with established national charities and other diocesan Catholic agencies, CDOW aims to embrace and promote effective social action firmly rooted in the teachings of our Church.
CDOW has recently become the umbrella organistaion for the following; the St. Joseph's Pastoral Centre, the Westminster Deaf Service and the St. John's Southworth Fund.
As CDOW grows it will continue to be supported by funds from the St. John's Southworth Fund and the Growing Faith programme.
