Lent and Good Friday Appeal 2023
The Lent and Good Friday Appeal this year by ABM (Anglican Board of Mission – Australia) and AID (Anglicans in Development) supports the work of the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem through the community outreach of the Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza, as well as through a Youth Empowerment project.
The Youth Empowerment project aims to empower Anglican children and youth in the Diocese by providing them with leadership skills, and by strengthening connections to their Palestinian Christian cultural roots. Part of this project has already seen young people taken to some of the holy sites where Jesus walked and preached and prayed during his earthly life.
Your support of the ABM/AID appeal will also empower many vulnerable women in Gaza and improve the nutrition of their children, through the courageous work of the Ahli Hospital.
For further details, please refer to the Missions display on the narthex board, or visit www.abmission.org/Lent2023
