Lenten Collection - A Message from the Bishop
Dear Members of the Diocese,
Caritas Finland's Lenten Action this year is not a matter of sensational headlines, but the drought in Africa is nonetheless a disaster. It causes long-term suffering and robs people of food and other necessities of life.
I heartily recommend that you take part in this year's Lenten Collecton, which is a joint effort by our Diocese and the Catholic Diocese of Stockholm in Sweden.
Please remember that the Jubilee of Mercy encourages us to be Merciful like the Father.
Wishing you a good period of Lent and joy as you help people in need,
+ Teemu Sippo SCJ
President of Caritas Finland
Bishop of Helsinki
