New Catholic charity

A CATHOLIC AIDS group has won recognition as a charity.

Catholics for AIDS Prevention and Support (CAPS), a network of Catholics throughout Britain and Ireland, was granted charitable status on February 3 by the Charity Commission.

The support group's first chairman, Roy Parr, said: "We are delighted to have finally gained charitable status. This marks a new opportunity for Catholics to engage with all people of goodwill in the fight

against 11W and AIDS. If we act as if HIV has gone away, then it never will.

"Our newspapers show us, every day, that this global catastrophe is marching onwards and upwards. hit has the will, the Catholic Church can be a major player. not only in care and support, but in promoting life rather than death, through prevention."

The charity will produce information on a range of issues of concern to Catholics faced with the challenges of HIV.
