Cardinal’s Lenten Appeal
Cardinal Vincent thanks you for your generous support for the Cardinal’s Lenten Appeal, especially throughout the unprecedented events of 2020. Your donations help fund initiatives in parishes, schools and charities in three mission areas which are more critical than ever: Marriage and Family Life, enriching and supporting marriages, the essential building block of society and the Church; Youth and Evangelisation, helping young people, the future of the Church, as they grow in their relationship with God and deepen their Catholic faith; Caritas Westminster, putting our faith into action by serving those in need; Education, supporting our Schools.
This year, the Cardinal is asking us to think about families who are struggling to put food on the table. Poverty is deepening across our Diocese and the need for foodbanks and supermarket vouchers has accelerated. Through your generosity we are continuing to provide food for those people most in need. Thank you for your generosity.

Donate your smartphone and make a difference
Gifting your smartphone to our friends seeking asylum will help them progress their lives
When our friends are detained at Immigration Removal Centres they are given a basic phone that allows them to call and text – enough to keep in contact with family, solicitors and charities but nothing more. No camera, poor audio quality, no internet access, nothing. When they are released back into the community, these phones are returned. Many of our friends are left without access to smartphones as they try to find their feet after weeks, months, years detained.
In the community, our friends need this important resource to be able to progress their lives – a cheaper way to stay connected through WiFi, the ability to search for a new solicitor or the nearest GP surgery, the possibility to partake in online classes and activities, and the capacity to use a translation/ interpreting service to overcome the barriers that language can cause.
A decent smart phone or tablet could make a huge difference, especially during an ongoing pandemic. With the ability to meet face to face and receive support no longer possible in the same way, swathes of organisations, charities and services have moved online. However, many of our friends do not have the ability to follow this move; only adding an additional layer of isolation and another barrier to support.
For those we support post detention, gifting your old smart phone will allow them to take part in ESOL classes, activities and support groups. It will enable them search and find their way around the area they are living, helping them to feel more settled. Most importantly, it will assist our friends to keep in better contact with their family and friends across the UK and world.
