Thank you for your support

Donations to CAFOD until 12 May
will be doubled by the UK Government.

We have planned a £5 million programme
to combat malnutrition - and with it
we hope to be able to reach 245,000 people.

But we need the full amount
of match funding to make it happen.

You can help us reach the full amount
needed for this crucial programme.

We still have some way to go yet!

To donate please go to www.cafod.org.uk/lent

to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Rosary, recited after Mass, will be
 followed by light refreshments
in the Parish Hall.

Prayer cards are being prepared to help you continue this devotion in your homes.
