Pope John Paul II Participants across the diocese - reach out to those in need!
In these challenging and uncertain times, we are called as Christians to reach out to those in need. As young people, this time of crisis is also a time for you to shine – to put your faith into action whenever you can, with kindness, calm, and hope.
We would ask you to reach out to those in your community who will be finding this time difficult - the elderly, vulnerable or those who might be self-isolating. *It is important that at all times you are aware of the guidance we are hearing from Public Health Authorities in regards to hygiene and social distancing.
Why not write a card or note to someone who you know who finds themselves in one of the categories mentioned above. Let them know you are thinking and praying for them at this time. Where it is possible (*remember Public Health guidance), offer to get groceries, run an errand for them or walk their dog!
Also, there are many organisations out there serving those in need - one that we are aware of is the Enniskillen FoodBank - check them out on Facebook, or see their recent post below.
Take a selfie with your letter, your FoodBank donations or the dog you take for a walk (can't be your own dog... we will find out ?) post to social media and tag:
and use #coronakindness
Your Parish Award Leader or us will sign you off for a social awareness activity.
Do you have any other ideas for reaching out to those in need at this time? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org
