PANCAKES and Project Compassion are on the menu for the first Cooking with The Catholic Leader video.
Caritas Australia diocesan director Joe Foley joined The Catholic Leader team to film a step-by-step pancake tutorial in the lead-up to Shrove Tuesday on February 17.
The following day, Ash Wednesday, marks the start of Lent and also Caritas Australia’s 2015 Project Compassion appeal.
The annual fundraising campaign runs throughout the six weeks of Lent, with this year’s theme “Food for Life” focusing on food security for the world’s poorest communities.
