On Friday 5th October 2018 it is CAFOD family fast day, when we can choose to eat a little less than usual and the money we save is given to CAFOD to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves.
With this in mind starting on Friday we shall be collecting non-perishable food such as tins and packets. We will be collecting up to and including Friday the 19th October when we shall be holding our annual Harvest Festival Mass in Saint Bede`s Church. Could we ask for fruit donations on the day of our Mass (19th October)
The donations will be taken to the Newcastle Food Bank after our Mass so that they can be distributed to people who need it.
Within each class the children will make up a few boxes which will be distributed to some of our more elderly parishioners after our Harvest Festival Mass.
Many thanks for your continued support.
