Lenten Journeys

Throughout Lent JRS sends daily e-mails to support your Lenten journey of Almsgiving, Fast and Prayer. Each e-mail journeys with one of our refugee friends, accompanied with prayer and practical actions of how you can help support refugees and the work of JRS UK. This page will be updated with the daily journeys and the actions throughout Lent.
