The retiring collection this weekend is for WINGS, World In Need Group Scheme.
The WINGS collection will be shared between CAFOD’s Refugee Crisis Appeal and the parish Mary’s Meals project. CAFOD is directly supporting Caritas Hellas, who have been providing food, water, shelter, weather-proof and warm clothing and sleeping bags to thousands of refugees in detention centres. Over 62,000 refugees are living in limbo in Greece, facing an uncertain future.

Mary’s Meals in Guernsey has undertaken to provide a daily meal for children in a school in Malawi, thus enabling them to benefit from their education. Many thanks for your continued generosity and please remember those you help in your prayers.
