Growing in Faith Campaign: The Last Lap and a Big Thank-You
Those who made a five year pledge have so far donated an amazing £110,541 (including gift aid) out of a total parish pledge of £147,371. Your generosity helps to train new priests, and to care for sick and retired priests. It also helps Caritas in its work of caring for those in need. And, no less importantly, your generosity helps to fund our own parish project, which is Sandra Lipner’s work in faith formation and youth work. Our gratitude to those continuing to contribute till the five year period comes to an end in nine or ten months.
