Thank you to everyone who attended the very first Lenten Lunch held in aid of CAFOD at Corpus Christi in Boscombe on Lent Fast Day. You’ve all helped to raise an impressive £123.50!
Big thanks to all the CAFOD volunteers at Corpus Christi including Anne, Maureen, Richard and Pamela!
And on the very same day, just over the road, Education Volunteer Jennifer Gunstone was visiting Corpus Christi primary who were also busy fundraising and praying for our partners in Myanmar! What a fab community of support! Thank you all so much!
If your parish is holding a special event over Lent – do let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and send us your photos. It’d be lovely to share your news with others across the diocese.

Don’t forget that this Lent, the UK government will match every pound donated to CAFOD’s Lent Fast Day appeal up to the value of £5 million, from Wednesday 18 February to Friday 17 May.
This means that all donations made as a result of all these super events will have double the impact, helping even more people living in extreme poverty overseas. Brilliant!
