A social service

ARCHBISHOP Worlock will preside and preach at a Civic Service in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathefral this Sunday. to celebrate the centenary of Liverpool Catholic Social Services.

The organisation was founded in 1881 by Mgr James Nugent, under the title Catholic Child Protection Society, Mgr Nugent had already started homes for abandoned homeless children, but he decided the best future for such children was emigratrion to Canada and Australia, and the CPS was set up to organise this.

Over the next 50 years 3,424 Liverpool children found new homes in Canada through the society.

When the 1930s depression hit Liverpool, the society started a fostering and adoption scheme at home.

The present name came after the organisation founded a club for the unemployed, extended its work to the deaf, mentally handicapped, elderly, and single homeless, and became involved with family advice and community work.
