Sisters of Holy Family siLENT
The Sisters are planning a day of silence on 10th March with their Lay Holy Family members and young friends of the Holy Family.
They hope together to clock up a million seconds of silence. They told us that "Together we can do great things".
The Sisters are doing their own fundraising, but if you want to donate, just click below and leave a message for the Sisters - we'll make sure it gets to them.
Speaking up with silence! Your sponsorship will make a real difference to young people without a voice, for whom silence isn’t a choice. Million Minutes celebrates young people and gives grants to support them to change their lives and their world. The money you raise during Lent will help many projects. For example, in 2017 Million Minutes supported ‘Field of Dreams’ in Basildon, a holiday programme run by young volunteers from the Catholic Parish. Some of the 100 children who attended never leave Basildon during the holiday period and Field of Dreams provides them with activities and new experiences. One volunteer explained: “We know that for some of these children, coming here really is the safest place for them to be during their holiday.”
