Today is Lent fast day and we hope that you will be able to mark the day by making a small sacrifice for example giving up a treat, having a snack instead of lunch or walking instead of using your car. Then please donate the money that you have saved to CAFOD’s Lent fast day appeal. Alternatively you could attend a simple soup lunch. Here is are some of the churches having a soup lunch today to raise money for CAFOD:-
St Saviour’s, Isle of Wight
Our Lady Immaculate, Bournemouth
Our Lady of Sorrows and St Philip Benzi, Ringwood
Sacred Heart & St Therese of Lisieux, Fordingbridge
St Edward the Confessor, Chandlers Ford
Corpus Christi, Wokingham
CAFOD works with partners like the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary to support those living in poverty and help them to learn new skills so that they can change their lives and lift themselves out of poverty.
Many thanks for whatever you do today and please pray for all the communities that CAFOD supports.
