St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels Food Bank- APPEAL

Many thanks to our parish SVP and all who continue to support our parish foodbank. Recently we have been able to provide ongoing support for a number of families from our schools & parish. As winter and Christmas approaches demand for support is likely to increase. As such we would be grateful for any food donations to support the foodbank ministry. Non-perishable goods can be delivered to St Mary’s Presbytery or left in the church porches.

Funeral Plans regarding Order of Service at St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels’ Parish: We know that this is a very sensitive matter and that few of us like to talk about it.  However, in order to ensure that your wishes are followed concerning your funeral service, Fr Louis & Deacon Tony strongly advise that you clearly record your thoughts and instructions. In order to assist in this, a document is now available to you from the parish. You are invited to take a document home and when it is completed return it to the parish where it will be stored securely. There is recorded on this document the option of making an appointment with Fr Louis or Deacon Tony if you wish to discuss the matter. Please do take one of these documents with you from church.

Requests for Transport to Mass:

We have had a request from Rivacre House where one of our elderly parishioners is asking for support with transport to 11am Mass on Sunday’s at St Saviour’s Church. If you are able to assist with this specific request or are generally willing to offer transport,  please contact the office at St Mary of the Angels on 0151 327 6158.
