CAFOD World Gifts: Give a gift of hope this Christmas In Advent, let’s share the promise of hope that has been made to us with our sisters and brothers around the world. You can buy CAFOD’s World Gifts for family and friends this Christmas online at /worldgifts.cafod.org.uk/ or pick up a catalogue in church. World Gifts such as “super soup kitchens”, “trees for life”, or “water for a family” will help transform lives in a world filled with challenges.
Living Pearl Boy’s Orphanage Here’s the latest from our parish project. The boys have now returned from Poland where they’ve been refugees since the start of the Russian conflict.
