Food Bank update
If you are able to donate any goods, they can be left either in the church (Narthex) or in the Parish Centre. The Food Bank is always very grateful for any contributions of goods, but current urgent needs are shampoo, shower gel and packets of savoury rice. Any cash donations can be put into the Parish Centre letter box in an envelope marked “FOOD BANK”. Thank you for your continued support.

Sacrament of Reconciliation
As lockdown prevents many Catholics from accessing the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Pope Francis has encouraged them to ask forgiveness from God directly.

Helping hands group
There is a group of parishioners who are willing to help others during the present situation of self- isolating. If you would appreciate someone giving you a regular phone call, just to chat, a friendly voice at the end of the line, or if you know of someone who would benefit from a call then please call Gillian Millyard on 01359 242475 who will match you up with a phone friend.
If you need shopping or medication fetching or know of someone in the parish who does, we will also try to cover this. Please bear in mind that we do not want to put our willing volunteers in any danger or flout the government guidelines. If you need help then again please call Gillian Millyard on 01359 242475.
