Welcome to siLENT – dropping the mic for charity.

SiLENT is a Lenten campaign of committing to a period of silent prayer and reflection each day. You will decide beforehand how long you wish to spend in silence each day and then gain sponsorship from family and friends to complete the journey.

By committing to siLENT your sponsorship money will go towards two amazing charities – Marys’ Meals and St Ambrose Barlow Loudres mission fund – funding 6th formers to travel to Loudres to care for sick and elderly pilrims.

We will be documenting one family’s journey through siLENT over the next 6 weeks – see how the Williams Family are progressing or create your own video diary and share it with us on social media below using #siLENTmic
