The Lent Appeal this year is concerned with restarting ordained ministry in a chaplaincy that has gone through tough times but where there is great potential. The new chaplain is one of the (very few) stipendiary, trained curates from our own diocese. The Reverend Guy Diakese trained for the priesthood in Nigeria and Rome. He speaks French, English and Italian fluently and the diocese are very proud of him as an example of black minority ethnic leadership. The money raised through this appeal will enable the beginning of Guy’s ministry in Liège, a former industrial city which is now home to large numbers of migrants from beyond Europe.
Do please take a minute to read Bishop Robert’s letter and to see if you are able to help. Holy Trinity will forward donations to the Appeal – please make sure all donations are marked for Lent Appeal. Thank you
