THE LENTEN APPEAL

This year is for Aid to the Church in Need

During this Lent we will be supporting Aid to the Church in Need’s Homs Homes project.  Homs in Syria saw some of the first protests of the Syrian conflict back in spring 2011 and in the years that followed much of the city was obliterated, forcing vast numbers of Christians to flee. They are now determined to return to their former homes in Homs an ancient city devastated by bomb damage. They need our support to rebuild their homes. 

Next weekend there will be an appeal during all Masses for this project. Aid to the Church in need is a Pontifical charity which works in 145 countries, helping persecuted and oppressed Christians around the world through prayer, information and action.  During the past century, Christianity has been all but driven out of the Middle East, the place of its birth. Christian communities in Syria and Iraq who were forced out of their towns and villages by the extremist group Daesh (ISIS) now have a chance to return home to rebuild their livelihoods.  ACN also supports over 5000 projects each year internationally helping the Church’s mission. 

 If you wish to get involved in the charity, please contact John Ravi,  area secretary for the  dioceses of Westminster and Brentwood  on   john.ravi@acnuk.org  or go to  www.acnuk.org                         

Please contact the parish office if you would like to organise any fundraising project for this good cause. Thank you.

Speaker at all Masses on the weekend of  February 29th/1st March 2020
