CAFOD - Family Fast Day
CAFOD – Family Fast Day

Thank you for your generous donations to CAFOD’s Family Fast Day during Lent. We featured Marian and her son Svondo in Zimbabwe in Lent 2018. The community vegetable garden that your donations helped provide is growing well and during the pandemic the family has survived on the vegetables. Your support has also helped to provide soap and hand washing stations in the garden and in family homes. This is just one of many long-term development projects that CAFOD has funded with the money from that Fast Day. Thank you for your steadfast support.

I have received three boxes this year, the total approximately £100. I appreciate the many difficulties people have been through but the Missions still depend on us for support. I know how generous you have been in recent years. Please see what you can do to bolster the above figure by leaving your contribution either with one of the Priests in the Sacristy or in the Parish Office.
Thank you so much for your continued support. Richard.

Coffee Mornings / Help Needed
Coffee Mornings / Help Needed

Coffee Mornings 

Coffees and teas after the 8.00am and 10:30 mass on Sunday will remain on hold until restrictions have been suitably relaxed. Unfortunately, this is a result of necessary restrictions and strict
cleaning requirements demanded by the States Education department arising from covid. Hopefully we will be able to offer teas & coffees again soon.

Helpers Needed (after 10.30am Mass)

We are keen to hear from any potential new helpers join our rota. If you have enjoyed these coffee mornings in the past, why not volunteer to help when they return? There is a rota of helpers, meaning that you would be ‘on duty’ approx once in every 4/5 weeks. If you are interested, please contact Gaby Betley on gaby@betleys.com. Thank you.
