Join us at Brentwood Cathedral Parish Hall on Monday 8 May at 8pm for a CAFOD talk on "Migrants and refugees - our brothers and sisters. An update on CAFOD's response to the Refugee Crisis' followed by discussion and reflection on how we can help in our parishes and communities. Last year CAFOD's World News Officer, Laura Ouseley, travelled to the village of Idomeni on the border of Greece and Macedonia. She visited the huge makeshift refugee camp to meet the men, women and children who live there, as well as volunteers and CAFOD partners. Laura will be talking about her visit and updating us on the work that CAFOD's partners are doing in Lebanon, Jordan and Greece. How can I help refugees? Watching the plight of refugees from war-stricken countries, such as Syria, can often leave us feeling helpless and asking ourselves questions such as “How can I help?”, “Could I help welcome and support a refugee family in my community?”. If you are interested in working out answers to these questions, please come along and share your thoughts. Pope Francis called upon parishes to play their part supporting refugees. This is your opportunity to respond to that call.  If you are interested in finding out please contact Brenda Underwood from Brentwood Cathedral Justice and Peace team on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Prayer for Lent

God of our healing and our wholeness, renew and recreate us in your truth. Let this time of Lent bring nourishment, refreshment, and new life to our hearts and spirits. Help us to become more aware of what we need to let go of and what we need to embrace. May we come to an ever deeper appreciation of the unique and wonderful work of art which You—the Artist of each soul—created us to be. We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus your Son who died that we might live life to the full. Amen.(“Turn to the Living God” from A Place at the Table, Lori True)
