Many thanks to all those parish volunteers who organised a soup lunch or supper on Friday 6th March Lent fast day. We really appreciate all you do to raise funds for CAFOD and to enable your fellow parishioners to put their faith into action and show their love and concern for those living in poverty around the world.

As Jesus said “In so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me” (Mt. 25: 40)

Thank you to Susan Kelly our parish volunteer at Our Lady Immaculate Westbourne for sending us the photo of their soup lunch.

Why not organise a simple soup lunch this Lent family fast day 15th March?

CAFOD parish volunteers at St Edward the Confessor Church, Chandler’s Ford tell us why they enjoy organising soup lunches and suppers in their parish. Having a soup lunch or supper is a great way to mark Lent family fast day by eating less or having a simple meal we can show solidarity for those who go hungry each day. We have soup recipes here and an editable poster that you can use to advertise it.

So why not organise one in your parish this Lent and don’t forget to send us a photo for the blog. Just like these ones from previous soup lunches .
