This year's the Bishop of Chelmsford's Lent Appeal is raising funds to support the Diocese of Jerusalem's Healthcare Ministry.
This web page explains how people, parishes and worshipping communities can support the Appeal if they would like to do so.
Inspired by the parable of the Good Samaritan, the ministry of healthcare is an important and growing ministry in the Diocese, one offered to those in need regardless of race, religion, or ability to pay. The diocese’s healthcare institutions range from homes for the elderly, to therapeutic residential facilities for special needs students, to clinics, rehabilitation centres and hospitals.
The need for support for the Diocese of Jerusalem’s healthcare ministry is particularly pressing at this time of war in the Holy Land.
Commenting on this year’s Appeal, The Right Reverend Dr Guli Francis-Dehqani, The Bishop of Chelmsford said:
“The funds raised through the 2024 Bishop’s Lent Appeal will help the Diocese of Jerusalem continue to offer essential health care to those in need, regardless of race, religion, or ability to pay. I am pleased that we are able to contribute to this important ministry at a time when it is needed more than ever".
