St Alberts Holy Land Prayer Vigil

A group of Parishioners from St Albert’s went on to the Holy Land on Pilgrimage in May 2018.

They visited Bethlehem and met Laila Asfoura at St Martha’s house who told them of the plight of the elderly in Bethlehem and her hope of establishing a Hospice for the elderly in Bethlehem. It would be the first of its kind in Palestine.

The group returned and sought ways to help. They identified the Bethlehem Care and Hospice Trust and sought to raise funds for it.

From this the appeal took shape, which was focused on a Prayer Vigil for the Care of Christians in Bethlehem.

The Vigil was held on 3rd November and raised over £7000.

St Albert’s Catholic Chaplaincy was very pleased to have been able to host this worthy event and support such a good cause.
