Chaplaincy students represent CTK at the Diocesan Good Samaritan Mass

On Monday 23rd April, Chaplaincy students, Francelene and Andreea, along with Deacon Javier, represented CTK at the annual Good Samaritan Mass organised by the Diocesan Education Commission at St George’s Cathedral, Southwark.

The occasion was the opportunity for Catholic School and Colleges to gather and celebrate the important work of Charity fundraising that takes place throughout the academic year. In particular, donations were brought forward for the CRISIS Fund, administered by The Westminster Catholic Children’s Society.

The main celebrant at the Mass, Archbishop Peter, thanked those assembled for raising money during the year for the Fund. He explained the Fund exists to help families in need, and that supporting those in need enables us to eminently fulfill the second Great Commandment to 'love your neighbour as yourself'. In his homily, the Archbishop said that the parable of The Good Samaritan offers a perfect example of a person who takes care of someone he does not know, but to whom he is compelled to offer help through compassion.
