When we want a glass of water we just walk into our kitchen. This year’s CAFOD Lent appeal aims to help bring access to clean water to those who often have to walk all day to fetch it, or who have to rely on dirty and polluted water sources. The commitment this Lent is to walk 10,000 steps (around four and a half miles) every day for 40 days. You can sign up at https://walk.cafod.org.uk/. Do let our PPC chair Shirley Kalinauckas (email@example.com) you are taking part so we can tell CAFOD about our parish efforts.
If you can’t commit to walking please sponsor someone who has signed up.
There is also the Lent Fast Day on Friday 26 February. There are some envelopes in both churches, but do donate online at https://cafod.org.uk/Fundraise/Family-Fast-Day. In this way we all have an opportunity to express our love and care for the poorest of our brothers and sisters overseas.
