Easter Egg Raffle in Support of
Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).
Next weekend and the weekend after we will be selling raffle tickets to raise money for Aid to the Church in Need. ACN is a Catholic charity at work in more than 130 countries, helping Christians who are persecuted, oppressed or in pastoral need.
The recent daily savage attacks on Christians of various denominations in the Middle East have rightly shocked the world. ACN helps these people in very practical ways.
As we approach the time of the year when we reflect on Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection let us support our Christian brothers and sisters as they witness to Christ. The 21 young Coptic Christian men from Egypt recently killed by ISIS in Libya would have been spared if they had given up their Christian faith – they didn’t – they are saints. Let us not abandon our Christian brothers and sisters suffering for Jesus.
