Lenten Project 2019

Posted

The total money raised from the Lenten project this year was £11,200. Our two chosen chartiies - CAFOD in Venezuela (Overseas Charity) and Otakar Kraus Music Trust (Local Charity) - have each received a cheque for £5,600.

This is due to be supplemented from Gift Aid tax when this has been reclaimed.

The events which raised the monies were:

Pastoral Council Meeting

Posted

Last week the Pastoral Council held an open meeting and about 20 parishioners attended. The aim was to give short reports of the five different areas of Parish Life; Catechetics, Liturgy, Parish Life (Love your Parish), Pastoral Outreach and Care of the Property. This was a very helpful exercise as it gives a chance to hear of the many activities that take place here in the Parish over the course of a year. A reasonably full list of activities will be given in a forthcoming edition of ‘The Page’.
