“WARM HANDS OF FRIENDSHIP”
Is an initiative of Inverclyde Council to allocate funding to community groups who will provide a warm environment and some sustenance for people who are really struggling with the cost of living crisis. Our parish Conference of the SVdP has been successful in applying for this funding.
Our proposal is to open up the Parish Hall on Sundays from January till the end of March from 12.00noon till 2.00pm where parishioners and anyone from our local community will be able to get something to eat and drink with an opportunity to socialise. As you know we already have the foodbank from 12.00noon on Sundays, but we really need some more volunteers to make this work. The more volunteers, the less everyone has to do, so if you could help, please pass your name to Father Gerry or to one of our SVdP Conference to allow us to plan for this.
THANK YOU for last week’s Offertory Collection which came to £916.34. Thank you also for the £598.16 given in the collection for Catholic Education.

The final talk of the series will be on ‘Blessed be God in His Angels and Saints’ by Father Ryan Black. This will take place on Wednesday 30th. November at 7.00pm in St. Mirin’s Cathedral and will be followed by Benediction and an opportunity to socialise over drinks.
