THE CARDINAL’S LENTEN ALMS APPEAL
This year the Cardinal has asked that the Lenten Alms collection be directed to the Cardinal’s Appeal fund. The funds raised will go to support parishes or groups in their work to further the mission of the Church: to serve the evangelization of youth, to develop marriage and family life projects, and to provide service in society, especially to those on the margins. Please take a leaflet, read and pray about this. Envelopes are available at the back of church today – you can make a Lenten Gift by placing the envelope in the designated box at the back of church. Please be as generous as you can.

Contact Katrina Lavery at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more. If you are over 18, your help would be very much appreciated as a helper in the Accueil St Frai, where sick pilgrims in most need of support and medical care stay. The role of a St Frai helper is to support the nurses and provide the sort of care for which you don’t need a medical qualification.
