This years Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal has commenced with
the flat packed shoeboxes and information available from the Narthex
after all masses.
Last year we had a great result, sending off almost 300 boxes
from our church and school community. The total collected from the UK
alone was over 900,000 boxes with 11 million being delivered to children
in 100+ countries.
The filled boxes need be back with us by the weekend of 12th/13th
November and as in previous years, for those of you that would rather
not build a shoebox but would still like to take part, then all donations
will be gratefully received and Andrew will build the boxes for you.
Thank you for your support on this wonderful cause.
