Spiritual Gifts and Practical Gifts - The Porridge Club
The four weeks of Advent are increasingly busy in our commercialised world, and while we wrap gifts for our loved ones, we need to take a little time to unwrap some spiritual gifts for ourselves.
As we prepare the way for the Lord in our lives this Advent, each week, we offer you a scripture passage and a prayer, and present four stories showing some of the ways in which Salesians of Don Bosco and members of the Salesian Family in the UK are living their vocation to reach out to the young, and following the Gospel call to compassion and mercy.
We hope the stories inspire you to act in this season of good will:
Pray for the success of the work being done and the people who give and receive it?
Get involved in these projects, or others that support young people, by volunteering?
Make a donation to help this work continue?
In the first week of Advent, we hear from Share the Light, a charity run by young people, for young people, which began in Salesian School, Farnborough, and makes connections with young people in Zambia, providing friendship and practical support, including the Porridge Club, to give children a nutritious start to their day.
