Last week we raised an amazing $541 for Caritas Project Compassion. Well done SMCM – giving to others (almsgiving) is an important part of Lent and it helps us to become closer to God.
This week’s Caritas Friday fundraiser links to Margret’s story. Margaret is a teacher at a vocational school for deaf students in the Solomon Islands. Margret and her students face water shortages and they have to walk off campus twice a day to collect safe drinking water.
We have reflected on Margret’s story in Religious Education this week and we are even going to take up a water challenge later in the week! Stay tuned!
How would you feel if you were Margret?
How did Caritas help Margret and her students?
