GIFT SUNDAY is being observed here on 20th December. As you know we have, in past years, organised a collection of gifts for sick and underprivileged children and the homeless. Regrettably, due to the ongoing restrictions placed on us all by the Covid-19 pandemic, giving presents is not a practicality. Instead, we are intending to have a special collection during all Sunday Masses for the weeks 6th, 13th and 20th December and to share the proceeds between Chestnut Tree House and Turning Tides, both local charities.
It would be wonderful if the money normally spent on presents was instead put into these collections which would allow the charities to spend according to their needs. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
