LENT & Caritas 2017


Lent is a very special time of year, it is a time to reflect on yourself and your choices – what can you change or give up and put back in to become even better?

During Lent we must remember to pray like Jesus and show each other Acts of Kindness: Love Our Neighbour. For Lent in 2017, we hope to demonstrate love for our neighbour through our actions and through our generosity.

“To love God and neighbour is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, the face of Jesus” – Pope Francis, 2013

  • What your Lenten promise will be this year?
  • What you are going to give up or change?
  • What you are going to put back in or replace it with?


Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion calls on everybody to “Love your neighbour” in 2017. This year Project Compassion demonstrates how love for our neighbours can transform lives by empowering individuals and communities in six countries around the world.

How you are going to ‘love our neighbours as ourselves’?
