Caritas and refugee Sunday

Caritas Sunday 

On Caritas Sunday in August, all parishes in Switzerland hold, at the request of the bishops, collections for the work of Caritas Switzerland. Each year, the focus is on a different theme. 

Refugee days / Refugee Sunday 

The refugee days take place in Switzerland on the third weekend of June. This also includes the Caritas Refugee Sunday. The collection on this Sunday helps people who have left their homeland because of need or desperation. About one month beforehand, you can find documents for the church service on this page, but only in german, french and italian.
