Blessed Sacrament parish, Chelmsford – Connect2 quiz

Quiz Night

Blessed Sacrament parish has been busy during Lent raising money for their Connect2 community of Puentecitos in El Salvador.

Parish volunteer Eileen Webster organised Lenten lunches and a quiz, raising over £1000 in total!

In Puentecitos, Julia Laguán explains how her church community marks Lent and Easter. On the six Fridays before Good Friday, people gather together in a corn field for the Stations of the Cross. They do this in the late afternoon. In the corn field, they erect fourteen crosses, including the one marking the calvary. Each cross is decorated with flowers and with images of the saints.
