To help us prepare our hearts to celebrate our Lord’s birth (Advent) and to remember His Passion and Resurrection (Lent), the parish organises specific donation drives in support of Catholic Social Services (CSS).
During Advent, we usually hold a raffle to raise funds for a particular group or charity. We welcome the donation of items that will help make up the raffle hampers. It can be food and festive treats, personal care products, candles, small household items etc…
During Lent, we run our pyjama drive as we head into winter. We warmly welcome donations of new winter pyjamas, warm socks, dressing gowns, hot water bottles etc. We give these items to CSS who distribute them to families in need at Easter.
