The priests’ donation to Caritas came in response to a request from their bishop last Holy Week, given the worldwide economic downturn.

Caritas Spain reported that the response to Bishop Carlos López’s request brought €63,000 for the neediest of the diocese. This donation is in addition to the economic and pastoral assistance that is ordinarily given by the priests.

The national Caritas office publicly thanked the priests for their commitment to the poor.
