CARITAS Gran Canaria – your parish church / su parroquia

Cáritas offer support and counselling through your local parish priests and volunteer workers. This is irrespective of your faith or views in religion. The door is always open. You should click on the weblink shown on this page and then on the link that says “Lugares y Horarios de acogida de las Cáritas Parroquiales” half way down the page. This will take you to a pdf list of local parishes in the province of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and times they are available outside times of mass and to more contact details. For example, the parish information for the south of Gran Canaria (incl. Maspalomas, Mogán etc.) is currently page 19 of the pdf (Spring 2019).

Coverage area and additional information

Cáritas is the Roman Catholic church’s principal charity organisation in Spain. It provides a large amount of aid and support nationally and internationally and is coordinated on a parish level, i.e. you should initially seek support from your local parish church and programmes available will vary by parish. Its philosophy at a parish level focuses on supporting a person in need and counselling over a period of time.
