For Lent 2015 the theme is Light a fire in the heart of the world taken from Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.
Resources for schools will focus on our partnerships in the Philippines. The stories will feature the emergency cycle and how communities are responding to disasters that regularly affect communities. The emphasis will be on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) which includes adaptation and preparedness. Two recent typhoons have devastated different parts of the Philippines and we will share with you, photos of the courage and resilience of communities as they slowly recover from the devastation.
We will be mailing the Lent in Schools resource pack early December to all Catholic schools. Most of the materials will also be available on this web page.
Don’t forget to mark the date for the Caritas Challenge 27-28 March 2015.
