Our Prayers are Needed:

Please continue to prayer for all our special workers who are out there keeping us safe. Prayer for all of the victims of the pandemic and their families who are grieving. Remember also all of our homeless for whom we are still trying to support in our Parish. Please pray that they may stay safe too.
DONATION APPEAL – CAN YOU HELP? (Appeal to help our Patish Homeless)

These weeks of lockdown are difficult for all of us, and we are particularly mindful of those whose jobs and lives are put on hold because of the pandemic. We want to be here for you during these difficult times. Even so, the Church in our Diocese of Portsmouth, its clergy, parishes and schools, is entirely dependent upon your generous charity. So that we can continue to provide the Liturgy of the Lord and our works, both centrally and from our parishes to the local community, I kindly ask all of the faithful who are able to do so, to continue their generous regular-giving to the Diocese and to their parish churches, which would otherwise lose vital income.

We continue to feed our homeless each day and on Sundays in the best ways we can. If you can make a donation to the parish then we would be most grateful.

We have set up a donate page for those parishioners who are able to.
