Trócaire has been in existence since 1973. It has provided great assistance and support to the developing world. The people of our parishes can be especially proud of the donations that they have made. These have made it so that the poorest of the poor can thrive and live positive lives. War has taken everything from many families. This year, Trocaire focuses on such families who have escaped terrible violence in South Sudan. They lack many of life’s basics: proper shelter, food, access to clean water, healthcare, seeds, tools, and training to feed the ones they love in a changing climate. This Lent, you are asked to help struggling families to survive.
Trócaire boxes are available in the churches. You are invited to take one and fill it up during Lent. Every penny counts and helps to make a difference.
