Volunteer names to Father Michael. Thanks!
COLLECTIONS £477 last week plus £480 Standing Orders. Many thanks.

THE SVP- TURNING CONCERN INTO ACTION
The St Vincent De Paul Society meets from 8.00pm – 9.00p.m. every Monday evening in the Pugin Rooms. The purpose of this group is to befriend our local sick and lonely community members, providing company and a listening ear, especially important in the winter months. They visit them in their homes, in hospital and in care homes on a regular basis and offer additional practical support. As we visit people in their homes we have strict safeguarding policies and procedures and all visiting members must hold a DBS certificate. New members are always welcome! Come along to the Monday meeting to find out how you can help and be a part of this wonderful ministry. https://www.svp.org.uk/
