Lent has a special place in the heart of World Relief. 70 years ago Park Street Church in Boston decided that during Lent they were collectively going to fast from one meal per week and give the money they saved forgoing that meal to the churches “War Relief Fund”. This fund was designed to help churches in Europe rebuild after World War II. Eventually the War Relief Fund became World Relief.
This year for our 70th anniversary, we invite you to return back to World Relief’s roots with us and join us as we Rediscover Lent.
