Every Wednesday during Lent the Chaplaincy team at DeLisle School in Loughborough have provided lunch at their Lenten Soup Station.
They have been raising approximately £70 every week to support this year’s CAFOD Family Fast Day #GiveItUpChallenge.
This reflects so well Bishop Patrick’s call for us all to be missionary disciples and putting our faith in action by responding to the needs of our global neighbours.
Money raised this Lent enables CAFOD, the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England & Wales, to continue the work we do in the many countries where we work, often alongside of CARITAS International sister agencies, ensuring that No One Is Beyond Reach.
Thank you to staff, students, parents and Chaplaincy Team for inspiring us!
I have been so impressed by all the wonderful ideas our schools have come up with this Lent. From sponsored dances to sponsored silences. Cake stalls to soup lunches. Thank you all for your generosity and putting your faith into action!
St Mary’s Glossop have really got stuck in and started their Lenten Fundraising with a visit from their new CAFOD Schools Volunteer, Paul who presented our #GiveItUpChallenge Assembly to the whole school.
This Friday, 5th April, the Chaplaincy team have organised a second hand toy sale to raise funds to help families like Mahinur’s in Bangladesh
There is still time to take part in our #GiveItUpChallenge, whatever your age and your donations this Lent are very much needed.
Thank you St Mary’s Glossop and thank you to all our schools; staff, parents and students for being such brilliant Global Neighbours!
