In his recent encyclical ‘Fratelli Tutti’, Pope Francis sets us a challenge:
“Each day we have to decide whether to be Good Samaritans or indifferent bystanders . . . Will we bend down and help another get up? This is today’s challenge, and we should not be afraid to face it.”
This Lent we raised £345 for Mission Together, the Catholic Church's official children's charity for overseas mission. The money we have raised will support disadvantaged children and families and provide life-changing aid around the world in whatever form it’s needed. That could be a new school, vaccinations or a generator for a children’s home.
Mission Together supports children’s spiritual wellbeing and while we pray and fundraise for children overseas, children around the world are praying and sharing too, in an amazing exchange of faith and friendship.
We thank Mission Together for producing such wonderful Lenten resources. Together, we have reflected on how we can help others using the Lenten liturgies, and popular interactive classroom calendar which highlights each Sunday’s Gospel reading and invite children to reflect on Jesus’s words and actions.
