Living Pearl our Parish Project – latest news.  Since fleeing the Ukraine they are still in the same location of Loukov Czech Republic. A new facility is being renovated to house them on a more permanent basis and they will hope to move there shortly. The boys are all fine. Some of them caught a cold/ flu but are all back to full health and causing havoc! The main thing is their mental health is good. They are happy and healthy. Locals come in to help cook and teach the boys.

Live simply Tip of the Week –  Buy whole fruits and vegetables instead of pre-packaged varieties: Pre-packaged apple slices, baby carrots or salad mixes may be convenient, but they are expensive and create a lot of unnecessary trash. Instead, opt to cut up your own apple or mix your own salad.

Fairtrade products  For the next few week’s we’ll be featuring various product’s through the Newsletter.  Fairtrade Certified Gold is the world’s first independent ethical certification system for gold.  Buying Fairtrade Gold makes a real difference to the lives of miners, their families and communities. Jewellery with the Fairtrade Gold Stamp is extra special. Buying it means you know the small-scale and artisanal miners were paid a fair price, giving them financial security.  When next visiting a local jeweller why not ask l if they sell Fairtrade jewellery/gold products!  This is an excellent 4 minute film about gold mining   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g-TIbSVr0I

Prayer for Peace Bless your persecutors, bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Do not return evil for evil, but let everyone see your goodwill. Be humble, do your best to live in peace with everybody.      Romans 12:14
