London soup kitchens are currently closed

Amid concerns for all the Order takes this decision

London 19 March 2020

Respecting government guidelines and with concerns for the health and safety of our guests and our helpers we have with regret had to close our soup kitchens in London: Monday’s Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Wednesday’s Breakfast club and the Thursday’s soup kitchen. 
Our team leaders and regional coordinators will be in contact with all our helpers and as soon as we can, we let you know plans going forward.

Our prayers are especially for those suffering due to the pandemic. Pope Francis has reminded us of the importance of small gestures of kindness to each other and exhorted the Virgin Mary to watch over the world, that she ‘….shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.’
