Trocaire – East Africa Appeal

Trócaire will be holding a special church collection next weekend (November 13th & 14th) to help
alleviate the humanitarian crisis in East Africa. 

The emergency appeal calls for support for the people in Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan and South Kordofan where up to 30 million people are currently facing life-threatening food shortages.

We pray for the emergency appeal with Psalm 146, “The LORD keeps faith forever, secures justice for the oppressed, gives food to the hungry.” 

 

Post- Communion Reflection:

Lord, when I am hungry, give me someone in need of food; when I am thirsty, send me someone needing a drink; when I am cold, send me someone to warm; when I am grieved, offer me someone to console; when my cross grows heavy, let me share another’s cross; when I think only of myself, draw my thoughts to another
