Almsgiving at St George’s
Supporting the foodbank and outreach to the homeless by the Franciscan Friars of the renewal in East London.
One of the apostolic missions undertaken by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal is to serve the materially poor, most especially the destitute and homeless. By living in poor neighbourhoods, running homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and youth programs, friars strive to fulfil the command of the gospel and their Holy Father St. Francis to live among the poor, providing for their physical and spiritual needs.

You can also watch the video of their visit:
God our Father,
you invite us to come to you with all our hearts.
May our Parish Mission be a time of great renewal
for us and for your Church in this place.
Fill us with your living Spirit
so that love may grow among us
and we may experience
life to the full.
We ask this
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
