In an email this week from Bishop David he writes,
You will be delighted to know that our Lent appeal last year realised the wonderful total of £5,286.
We have received a letter of heartfelt thanks from Kampala and we are checking to make sure that the donation to ministry among the street children of Kolkata was safely received.
These gifts will make a huge difference in Kampala and Kolkata—even modest amounts of money go a very long way..
Very many thanks to everyone who contributed to the Lent appeal last year.
Bishop David is now inviting suggestions for the subject of the diocesan Lent appeal 2014. He is particularly interested in focussing on something in our own community. If you have any ideas please let Fr Jonathan know.
Lent begins this year on Wednesday 5 March (Ash Wednesday).
