Prayer Support Helps Too!
All charities desperately need our financial help – but they all stress that the support of our Prayers is equally important.
We actively encourage ALL parishioners to remember in their prayers, ALL the charities we have selected for our support. They are
- Aid to the Church in Need;
- Christian Aid
- Congo School for Peace;
- Mary’s Meals;

“THANK YOU” FROM MISSIO”
Thank you for your donations to World Mission Sunday last week.
Your prayers and support of World Mission Sunday will help missionaries work alongside communities throughout the world that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. Please pray for the work of Missio.
As Pope Francis says, this gift of our faith is given to be shared. We cannot keep it to ourselves: “We, the Church, must constantly keep pressing forward, beyond our confines, in order to testify to all the love of Christ.” Pope Francis teaches that ‘humility is the only way that leads to God.’
True humility, far from discouraging us from witnessing, is in fact the driving force of all mission.
To continue supporting “Missio” throughout the year, please go to missio.org.uk or call 020 7821 9755.
If you prefer a red box, please contact Bernadette Starak 07825 408254 (between 6pm and 8pm weekdays).
Copies of the Autumn 2022 magazine are available in the porch for you to take home.
“Thanks again for your support!”
