Prayer Life at St. Cross
Lent 2021 Fundraising at St Cross
Supporting charities is a very important part of Lent, as it reminds us that Jesus has helped us and we should help others by putting their needs before our own. You don’t have to give a lot of money, the fact you give something is the important thing.
We are inviting our whole school community to get involved in CAFOD’s Walk for Water Challenge and raise money for those who do not have access to water. You can use your lockdown exercise walks to unite with people like Abdul, Mohammed, and their cousin Abdella, who walks ten hours a day to fetch water. Abdella lives in Afar, Ethiopia - one of the hottest places on earth. Like hundreds of people in the area, he spends most of every day getting water for his family. With a water point nearer home, his family would no longer have to worry about getting enough to stay alive. And Abdella could start on the dreams he has for the rest of his life.
How can we help?
You could get sponsored by the number of steps, by the distance you walk or by the number of walks.
