It's Time to Congo!

Yesterday's blog was about the necessity of doing Justice and Peace as a basis element of our Catholic faith and there is a real need for us to do that through charitable giving to the crisis in the Congo. CAFOD has launched a £1 million pound appeal to support emergency relief in the eastern Congo.
They are asking parishes to hold an emergency appeal if possible. Next weekend and the weekend after there are designated collections but not this weekend. They are also asking individuals to give generously in a mass mail out.
CAFOD is probably one of the best placed organisations to help in this area of the Congo through Caritas Internationalis, the international federation of Catholic agencies and also through exisitng partners such as Caritas Goma, the local diocesan aid agency. Please give generously!

'My brothers and dear friends, do not give way but remain faithful in the Lord' (Philippians 4:1)
