CAFOD LENT FAST DAY – Friday 26th February
Abdella lives in an extremely remote and mountainous part of Ethiopia. It takes him ten hours a day to collect water. He says his life is being wasted as he has no time for anything else. Give today to reach vulnerable communities around the world with water and to provide other vital support.
Donate online at cafod.org.uk/give or by using one of our envelopes. You can give via text. Text LENT to 70460 to donate £10. Texts cost £10 plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £10 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text LENTNOINFO to 70460.
Miraculously, the boiler has decided to work again. However, conscious of the fact parts are no longer available, we will continue with our project to replace it. Fr Luke is grateful for the donations received thus far, and will continue with the second collection.
We are considering removing the hall stage and Fr Luke invites reasoned opinion from parishioners (firstname.lastname@example.org). When Fr Luke arrived, the stage was an area of great concern as our H&S inspectorate deemed it a fire hazard due to its use as a ‘dumping ground’, and falling hazard owing to its height. Removing the stage, eliminates these risks, and creates more space. More space gives us the opportunity to create more cupboard space, and the ability to increase hiring fees. The intention is to recycle the stage for flooring, and structural elements of the cupboards. We will purchase stage blocks, as used by schools, for when we need an elevated area.
