Languages of publication
Caring about the poor and people in need has always been and should re-main the domain of the Church activity and the characteristic of a Christian. In the Diocese of Ełk, the Caritas is the main ecclesiastical institution for the as-sistance of the poor. Its mission is to provide people in difficult situations with spiritual and material assistance. The article makes a presentation of the Ełk Caritas’ establishment and legal basis, objectives and tasks, organizational structures, brief timetable, as well as of selected Caritas posts and their forms of activity. In the Ełk Church, providing charitable service has always been a current pastoral challenge. The Ełk Caritas, following Pope Francis’ call, goes to the periphery of poverty to carry the light of the Gospel there.
