cross care food bankSunday, November 19th marks the first ever World Day of the Poor, announced by Pope Francis at the end of the Jubilee of Mercy. It is an opportune moment to remind parishes that Archbishop Martin is seeking practical support for a ParishFood Appeal on December 2nd and 3rd for the Crosscare Foodbanks.

It is an opportune moment to remind parishes that Archbishop Martin is seeking practical support for a ParishFood Appeal on December 2nd and 3rd for the Crosscare Foodbanks.

Crosscare work with many individuals and families throughout the Archdiocese who are struggling to make ends meet. The Food Banks provide support with essential food and household items.

This year we are asking that collections be held on one weekend only. This will allow us to distribute hampers in good time for Christmas to hundreds of families.
We have identified items that are most needed at this time:

These include 
 • Shampoo & Hygiene Products
 • Soups
 • Tinned meats
 • Seasonal Biscuits
 • Cleaning Products 

Please bring non-perishable food items ONLY to the Church, any Sunday during Mass times or on weekdays to the Parish Centre during office hours (Monday to Friday 9:30am – 1pm) up to and including Sun 3rd Dec.
