siLENT – Choosing Silence in Solidarity with the Forcibly Silent
Million Minutes – a Catholic social action charity – stands up for young people who don’t have a voice in society, and helps them to transform their lives and their world by giving them a voice. We know that young people are the future and we have faith in them that they will work for the common good, in order to help everyone live a life of dignity.
This year we have launched the 2020 Lenten initiative – siLENT. Million Minutes feels Lent is a great time to try something different: silence. Take time to give up the things that fill life with noise and restlessness. By staying siLENT, you will be standing in solidarity with young people who don’t have a voice, for whom silence isn’t a choice.
