Listen to God: Hear the Poor

The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of Westminster have launched a Lenten initiative to encourage people to pray for the work churches do to support those in their parishes and beyond - particularly the poor and vulnerable. 'Listen to God: Hear the Poor' runs from Sunday 6 April - Palm Sunday, 13 April, and prayer resources are available for download to encourage us to join the Archbishops to foster the work of the church in strengthening communities and helping those in need across our countries.

'Listen To God: Hear the Poor' - Palm Sunday, 13 April

On the final day of Cardinal Vincent Nichols' and Archbishop Justin Welby's week of prayer for the church's work serving the poor, Archbishop Justin Welby says John's story of Jesus washing his disciple's feet reminds us of something "crucial" about what we are to do as Christians. That is, we must strive to love each other - even our enemies - as Jesus loves us.
