Good morning - well, a little damp and overcast
Following on from my Cafod meeting yesterday, I became very aware of how our Catholic charities like Cafod and Missio are struggling for cash at the moment particularly when they are trying to support Church partners across the world who are the forefront of both fighting this virus and caring for those who are afflicted. Whatever we are going through now, and it is horrendous, at least we have a wonderful NHS and utterly committed teachers and front-line workers.
But imagine what it is like now in those parts of the world who don’t have our huge and flexible infrastructure. And the news is that as it is getting a little bit better here, it is getting worse especially in sub-saharan Africa.

They not only have donation pages but are full of news about the Church’s tremendous outreach programmes during these difficult times.
Let’s continue to remember in our prayer today all those who care for the sick and all our frontline workers:
Joseph, Lisa, Patrick, Chris, Catherine, Anne, Terry, Mark, Theo, Clare, Richard, Anthony, Jane, James, Andrew, Mary, Francis, Ruth, Tony, Sue, Dan, Fiona, Katy. Ian & Bethany
St Joseph, guardian of the sick, pray for us
