We are living through uncertain times. I am certainly feeling it right through to my bones. The difficulty with this is that a lot of things we would like to be “normal” to offer us a sense of control, are also not achievable….
This run up to Christmas will be very different. We are planning as best we can – but we will need to wait for Government guidance on what is possible or not.
We continue to stream live – and we will add lots of stuff for Advent and Christmas…
We can’t have our Fair – a real shame. But we can continue to help others through our actions…..
Advent and Christmas Action
We are collecting in Church and in the Presbytery for three things:
1) Christmas Raffle
We are asking for donations for the Christmas Raffle. 5 prizes will be put together from what we gather…
1 A TV….
2 A food hamper
3 A drinks hamper
4 A smellies hamper
5 Some high street vouchers.
Anything we don’t use for prizes will be used for Caritas – locally and on a Diocesan level.
2) Our Caritas Collection
We are collecting to support the Diocese of Salford Caritas
They need the following items….
• Tinned Soups and Stew
• Pasta, rice and pasta sauce.
• Tinned meat or fish, beans and frozen vegetables and fruit.
• Long life milk or natural fruit juices.
• Liquid hand soaps, sanitisers and personal hygiene products.
We will make sure we make provision for local families before passing on the goods to Caritas.
3) Our Crib Collection
We are collecting money donations for three Charities we support every year at this time. Frances House, Derian House and the Mother and Baby Unit close by.
This will be a crib collection. You can donate in the collection bucket at the crib, we have envelopes you can use – or you can donate online on our website.
Please give what you can – we will do the rest…… Just dump it on our doorstep…
