Christians Against Poverty
Thank you for your incredible generosity to this project. This year, again, we are asking for goods or donations to go towards Christmas Hampers for those who are trying to find their way out of debt.
A bit like Peter Kay, after an absence, we have been called again to the Coop to sing Carols on Sunday the 18th of December – the week before Christmas – from 1 pm – 3pm. What a great way to get into the Christmas Spirit!
We do have beautiful grounds but the drawback in the winter is obvious. Canon Tom is in negotiations with a company to try to provide some gritting at the weekend but meanwhile we shall have to fend for ourselves. Would you be willing to make yourself available for some snow clearing and gritting? Please contact Canon Tom.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Noreen Reilly and all the deceased members of our family and friends and fellow parishioners at this time.
