Read our Reflections for Lent

March 7, 2022

The season of Lent is a time when many of our supporters will be choosing to live in a more deliberate and conscious manner.

The health consequences of Covid may be changing for many thanks to the vaccine. But many remain vulnerable, and the economic and social consequences are still being felt by people on the margins. We see added challenges with refugee families living in hotels for months, parents reporting their infant children falling behind in key milestones and increasing household bills pushing hundreds more into poverty.

As Cardinal Basil Hume said: "Christ came to all of us, for all are in need. But by singling out the poor and the oppressed, he was laying particular stress on what today we call the ‘marginalised’; those who, for one reason or another, have been pushed to the margins of our society: the economically poor, the homeless, those mistakenly considered to have little or nothing to contribute to society".

In his lifetime, Cardinal Hume helped hundreds of people in Westminster, and now the Centre’s community ensure that legacy lives so that young people and families facing homelessness have somewhere to turn.

As we look forward to the joy of Easter, we thank you all for your support in these difficult times.
