Charity & Giving

Sydney French Roman Catholic Charities

Message from Fr Jan Chrzczonowicz

I would like to express my gratitude to all that in a variety of ways showed their kindness of heart through their continuous support of the charitable works of Fr Pedro Opeka at Akamasoa in Madagascar.

Your faithful commitment was an expression of your love for the poor through participation in our 19th Charity Night on the 28th October 2017. It gave to the poorest of the poor in the capital of Madagascar hope for the continuation of their endeavours to regain their dignity as Human Persons through education and hard work in granite quarries, garbage dumps and in construction and their maintenance of Akamasoa.

I am pleased to announce that thanks to your personal donations, lottery and sales of artefacts we have raised $85,862.00.

To see more details regarding our last Charity Night you can consult our SFRCC website:

Following the very impressive report of Jenny Cullen about Fr Pedro on the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney website, I would like to propose few words by Edward Gobetz, professor emeritus of sociology at Kent State University – read here .

Yours gratefully in Christ: Fr Jan Chrzczonowicz
