Sant’Egidio to host Christmas lunch for the poor

ROME – The Sant’Egidio Community will once again prepare a Christmas lunch for the poorest among us in Italy and around the world, a release from the community says.

 “Christmas is better when there’s a place for everyone,” the community writes, advertising its event ‘A Natale aggiungi un posto a tavolo’ (At Christmas, add a place at the table).

 Supporters of Sant’Egidio are encouraged to give monetary support to the lunch, by visiting its website, or texting or calling 45586 to donate between two and five euros.
