As we journey on through Lent, we’d like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has held a special Lenten Lunch or Supper in aid of our Lenten appeal so far and draw attention to the fact that there are still many going on each week!
Can you make any of these? Take a look at the list below and go along if you can to give our volunteers your support this Lent.
Every Friday during Lent – Lenten suppers will be held after the 7pm Mass at St Edward the Confessor, 191-193 Winchester Road, Chandler’s Ford, SO53 2DU. These start on 12th February and will continue until 18th March.
Every Friday during Lent – Lenten lunches will be held at Our Lady Immaculate, Seamoor Road, Westbourne BH4 9AE at 12pm.

Every Thursday during Lent- Lenten lunches will be held at St Michael’s Church, St Michael’s Steet, Southampton SO14 2AD at 1pm. This is a joint event with the Anglicans and parishioners from St Joseph and St Edmund Church proceeds will be split between CAFOD and Christian Aid.
Every Wednesday during Lent – Lenten lunches at Our Lady and St Joseph’s, 132 High Street, Lymington SO41 9AQ from 12 noon to 1.30pm.
As you know, all these special lunches and suppers will have double the impact this year because we have once again successfully secured UK Aid Match Funding for our Lenten appeal. This means that the UK government will match pound for pound every donation made to the appeal – up to the value of £3.5M. Terrific!
Thank you so much to everyone for helping our partners ‘Turn on the taps’ for thousands of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Uganda.
