Shoe box appeal
This year as part of our Christmas preparations we are asking parishioners to take part in the Christmas shoe box appeal. If you have any empty shoe boxes can you please drop them into the parish office or if you would like to get involved in the appeal you can do so by filling the shoe box with a range of simple Christmas gifts, drop it off at the parish office and we will do the rest.
Why? They are forgotten children - victims of war, disease or poverty. Children living on the edge, in some of the poorest countries in the world. For families living on less than €1 a day, Christmas is just another ordinary day - nothing special, no Christmas tree, no presents. BUT your shoebox will bring a little hope, a lot of laughter and smiles, and a practical expression of God's love at Christmas time, for children who have very little. We will share more details of this initiative in the coming weeks.
