Charitable acts is one of the 3 basic natures of the church alongside spreading the word of God and the sacraments. Helping the poor has always been at the centre of the church's nature, however in today's world it is perhaps one of the major things that is bringing new life back into church communities. An example of this is the housing of refugees, a project which has been taken up by many parishes and which is breathing new life into these parishes and communities. In witnessing poverry, injustice, marginalisation the church has never been one to just stand by and do nothing and in the midst of this is Caritas.
