TRÓCAIRE BOXES: Ambiyo (36) and Ibrahim (39) are parents to eight beautiful children aged from six months to fourteen years. They live in a makeshift hut, built from twigs, sticks and scraps of material, in the camp for internally displaced persons near Luuq, Somalia. They worry every day about having enough food to feed their children and being able to provide for them in the future. In 1973 the bishops of Ireland founded Trócaire in response to injustice and suffering in the developing world. Today Trócaire provides support to areas in greatest need around the world, empowers peoples in these areas to develop skills to cope with crises, and creates greater awareness of global issues in Ireland. Over the past fifty years, the people of Ireland have generously donated to help families like the Mahats. With your donation to the lenten campaign, you can help Trócaire continue this vital work . www.trocaire.org. GOOD FRIDAY TLC8: Try and get out to do a spot of litter picking. I know we shouldn't have to pick up someone else's rubbish but people are still ignorant as regards the damage they are doing to the environment. EASTER MARKET: Sunday 2nd April: 11am.
