Maricourt Family Fast Day
Lent is an important time of the year in Maricourt. As well as helping our students prepare spiritually for Easter, we also challenge them to contribute towards charity throughout the Lenten season. Our main charity for Lent is Nugent Care and this year we are also taking part in the CAFOD Lenten fast day.


The CAFOD campaign this Lent is called "Defend the Defenders". Every minute in the Amazon, an area of rainforest bigger than a football pitch is destroyed. Homes - and lives - are being lost as indigenous people's rights are ignored. That is why we in Maricourt are standing with them as they defend their lives, their homes and their way of life. Expert lawyers in our global network are risking their lives to defend the land of indigenous people in the Brazilian Amazon. Thanks to their work, more than 80,000 families now have a safe place to build homes, grow food and make a living.

This Lent we aim to show injustice the red card and we are encouraging our students to get involved to help people on the front line around the world. But we do this as a family - so we are inviting all staff, students and their families to take part in the fast day this Friday, March 6th. We will give up something on this day and contribute the money to CAFOD.

So join us as we seek to make a difference to the lives of all those living in the Amazon rainforest!!!
