While James Kimpton's humanitarian impulse was to respond to the need that he encountered among disadvantaged people and communities south India, regardless of caste or religion, his faith was deeply rooted in the vows he made as a young man to the De La Salle Brothers.
Many priests and members of the church congregations who continue to support us knew Brother James personally and have welcomed Father Antony Paulsamy, the current director of RTU in India, during his visits to the UK.
There are numerous ways for churches to support RTU and become involved in its work, including donating via collections, sponsoring children or students, fundraising within the church community.
Churches can also arrange for an RTU speaker to visit. Please contact Mo Houlden at [email protected] or on 01425 657321 to find out about booking a speaker in your area.
