WE CONTINUE TO OFFER A WARM WELCOME: to Father Peter Clarke who is supplying for us at Holy Ghost, together with Father David at St Michael’s while Father Jean-Patrice is away at the General Chapter of the Missionaries of St Francis de Sales in Guwuhati, Assam, India, and until Father Jose is able to return from his supply ministry in Devizes. Please remember the General Chapter in your prayers as this will determine the vision and mission of the Missionaries for the next six years.

Lord’s Larder Christmas Thank You


A huge thank you to everyone who donated food items this Christmas to Lord’s Larder, and thank you for the amazing support we experienced through December, it was truly inspiring to see the volume of donations we had coming in each day up to Christmas.

As you probably know through December, we put together Christmas Parcels for those who are on their own, individuals or families, who are experiencing the effects of poverty. This can often mean that Christmas Day will be just another day. These parcels make a difference showing that there are people out there in the community who do care. This Christmas, with your help, 300 Christmas Parcels were sent out to 429 adults and 425 children, alongside responding to daily requests for emergency parcels through December, of which we had 184 parcel requests from agencies, helping make a grand total of 1,248 people helped with food in December.


January 2019


This year The Lord’s Larder is still helping those who are in need of food parcels on a daily basis, and it is only with your support that The Lord’s Larder is able to help so many people. Through January with your help we were able to send out food to 312 adults and 127 children in need, a total of 244 food parcels to help a total of 439 people in the first month of 2019 in our local community. Thank you.


 If you find you are able to give a few items to the food bank, the Larder is currently running low on the following items,Long-life milk,, Bags of Sugar, Tins of Meatballs, Curry,  Chilli Con Carne, Nappies Sizes 4,5 or 6.


No more toiletries are required at the moment


These and any other items you would like to donate would be gratefully received,

          many thanks for all your continued support.
