Mass and Rite of Reception for Cardinal Vincent Nichols

Cardinal Vincent & Archbishop Justin Join in Support of Social Action Projects

Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Justin Welby will jointly visit two projects as part of their initiative this Lent to encourage people to pray for the work churches do to support those in their parishes and beyond.

Cardinal Nichols and Archbishop Welby will begin the week by visiting Giuseppe Conlon House on Passion Sunday (6th April) – a house which offers a place to stay in a Christian community for men who need a home whilst they work through immigration processes.

On Palm Sunday (13th April), the two Archbishops will visit the Rainbow Centre in Folkestone, Kent. This Christian charity works to support families and individuals through times of crisis, and to invest in children’s early years and well being.

During that week Archbishop Justin and Cardinal Vincent will give also give thanks to God daily for this essential act of service and they will pray for his blessing on the work of churches serving people in need.

Their aim is that by joining together in prayer and encouraging others to join them they will foster the work of the church in strengthening communities and helping those in need across the country.
