“The hope of the poor shall not perish for ever’.
On the World Day of the Poor, Nov 17th, from 1pm to 5:30pm, Caritas Portsmouth are holding an afternoon in St. Peters, Winchester where we can all can come together to share experiences and encourage new ideas around the issue of poverty. The event will include a short play by “Staging Faith” on the life of St. Vincent De Paul, and also some personal testimonies of people who have experienced life on the margins. There will be opportunities to network with others and to see what we can practically do to help those in need around us. Come along and let this event be the place where we begin to open our church doors to those in need and be a voice of the voiceless.
