Almsgiving Assembly

Mr Baldwin and his form gave an assembly about almsgiving. Giving alms, Jesus teaches, means making the needs of others our own, especially the needy of our world. Mr Baldwin spoke about the loss of his closet friend to cancer, and how important it is for him to do charitable work to help those who are suffering and have suffered. In deciding, decide generously. After all, before us is the great alms Jesus gave: “He loved us, and gave himself up for us.” Pope Francis said in his Ash Wednesday homily, ‘Lent is also a privileged time for prayer’
