We come to you this morning asking for your blessing and help as we are gathered together.
We pray for your guidance throughout our meeting and ask that you would clearly show us how to
do Your will with a spirit of joy and enthusiasm.
Give us the desire to find ways to excel in what we do. Help us to work together and encourage each other as we strive to build a better world.
We ask that we would challenge each other to reach higher and further, in service to our brothers and sisters across the world.
We ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

LentFast Day – Friday 2nd March
we’re inviting parishes and schools to
during the season of Lent
Zimi, 10 years old
Every £1 donated to CAFOD by supporters towards our Lent appeal, will be matched by the Government.
We are hoping to raise £2m.
That’s £4m with matched funding!
Imagine what could be done with that.......
(Reverse of envelope)
People can send back their donations in the post if they miss the collection
Amount of Gift Aid we’ve collected has reduced over the last few years.
Fewer people are completing the Gift Aid form.
If we could claim Gift Aid on the £2M we hope to raise – that would raise another £500K!

Holy Mary, Mother of God,you have given the world its true light,Jesus, your Son – the Son of God.You abandoned yourself completely
to God's calland thus became a wellspringof the goodness which flows forth from him.
Lead us to him.Teach us to know and love him,so that we too can become capable of true loveand be fountains of living waterin the midst of a thirsting world.
