Water in Lent

In many areas of the world clean drinking water is not available. 

For far too many people around the world it is a major priority and worry. It can take hours and hours out of each week trying to find it.  It can lead to days and days of lost work and study through illness caused by dirty water. It can take years off young lives.


Water is something we all take for granted. But for the 884 million people who don’t have access to clean water and safe sanitation, getting the next bucket of water is a constant worry. On your journey of reflection and preparation this Lent, please walk in solidarity with the world’s poorest people by raising money and awareness with your parish.
