St Pius InPrint has included articles on a broad range of subjects during 2017. There are some 'gems' in here - if you missed one the first time here is another chance!
If you do not see an account of the event you were expecting to see, it may be that nobody thought to record it. St Pius InPrint is meant to reflect the interests and concerns of the community, but it can only to so with contributions, whether informative, amusing or of general interest! Let's make 2018 even better!
Bishop Richard has requested that this year's Crib collection should support a new Crisis Fund. The article below taken from the January 2018 edition of A & B News explains the background. The Crib Offerings will be taken up as a second collection on 30th/31st December, the Feast of the Holy Family.
Here are the details of the shortlisted and successful charities this year:
Whilst some of us might own up to making rather marginal sacrifices before offering our Fast Day contributions, The Universe is due to publish an account of the altogether more committed endeavours of two business partners who raised around £17,000 for CAFOD and other charities.
What makes this of particular interest is that one of them is parishioner Nick Combes. There is a sneak preview below...
Many congratulations to Nick and his business partner Ed Holder on their achievements.
[Lent Fast Day is on 23rd February. Plenty of time to get into training!]
