Following your kind generosity last year, our Advent Project will support the local Barons Court Project which helps vulnerable adults to cope better with their mental illness, grow in confidence and live independently. They aim to work and to return to life off the streets.
If you would like to contribute please bring along a wrapped non-perishable gift (please label what it is on the front) to Mass next weekend, 7/8 December. The Barons Court Project are particular in need of Tins of Biscuits, mens socks, gloves, hats, nice toiletries (male and female) and boxes of chocolates. There will be collection boxes in the Church and we will invite children at the 10.30am mass to bring them forward. Many thanks to Ana Joao for arranging this.
