News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
During the month of May, the global school feeding charity, Mary’s Meals, invited individuals, churches and faith groups to pray for its work feeding hungry children in some of the world’s poorest countries and to ask for God’s continued blessing for its mission, as part of a new campaign called Pray In May.
Within the archdiocese eight parishes held Holy Hours with several churches dedicating the rosary to the work of Mary's Meals and one primary school holding a special rosary on Zoom. Prayers have been said at Mass and Mary’s Meals prayer cards were handed out.
Mary’s Meals, founded in Argyll, Scotland, in 2002, feeding 200 children in Malawi now feeds more than 1.8 million children in 19 countries around the world, working with local communities on the ground and volunteers.
Emma Hutton, Head of Grassroots Engagement at Mary’s Meals, says: ‘Prayer has played such an important part in Mary’s Meals’ mission right from the very beginning and helped us to transform the lives of children in some of the world’s poorest countries, by providing them with a daily nutritious meal in a place of education.’
Anna Dunne, Supporter Engagement Officer for Liverpool says, ‘all of these "little acts of love", as our founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow describes them, along with those from many other churches, schools, prayer groups and religious orders across the country is appreciated. We ask people to pray that our work continues to flourish and grow, and that more children throughout the world will see their lives transformed by receiving a daily meal.’
