Administrative history

A department of the Mothers' Union formed with the purpose of assisting young married women and encouraging them to join. Originally called the Fellowship of Marriage, it was first formed in England in 1921, and the first Australian branch was opened in Perth in 1925. The Sydney branch was formed in 1935, and the name was changed to Young Members' Department in 1949. In 1983 the Australian Commonwealth Council changed the name to Caritas, which means charity, or Christian love for others, in Latin. Their aim is to contact and reach out to women with no other church affiliation. Caritas groups are open outreach groups with flexible and unstructured programs
