Pope Francis has declared Sunday 19 November 2017 World Day of the Poor. Catholic communities throughout the world will, by prayer and action, be expressing solidarity and re-commiting to aid the poorest people in our world — whether in our midst, or in the wider world.
A Mass celebrating this event will be held at Sacré Coeur at 11:00 on November 19th, and parishes and communities are invited to send representatives to attend. From my part, I think it is important that our English-speaking community is well-represented at this Mass and the meal which will follow. Full details can be found here.
Please let me know if you are willing and available.
