Ten Years of The Catholic Volunteer Movement

Canterbury CVM Soup Kitchen 2

The first ever CVM soup kitchen was held on the feast of the Annunciation 2006 in Canterbury and they have continued on a regular basis ever since. We have seen and fed and helped clothe countless guests, probably over a thousand. Some have died in that time. We have taken some on holiday; visited others in hospital; we have helped those who have found accommodation furnish their properties; we have taken some into our homes and many other actions long forgotten by us but well remembered by them. We hope and pray that these little works of mercy done for the love of God will have a lasting impact on them and so open their hearts to Him.

We wish to assure you that the regular soup kitchens, now held twice a month (generally the second and fourth Saturdays) will continue and we earnestly continue to seek your prayers and support for these because we are getting busier and busier and recently fed 35 guests.

Regrettably, because we get so little help from fellow Catholics, we have to depend on non-Catholics to run the soup kitchen.

The CVM blog is back up and running with updates which we think will interest our friends and supporters — https://thecvm.wordpress.com/

We would like to thank all our friends and supporters over the last ten years and ask for continuing support over the next ten years.
