DAY FOR LIFE COLLECTION THIS WEEKEND: Last year in India was the hottest on record. Over 4,500 people in India and Pakistan died during last summer’s heatwave. Rising temperatures are making droughts more severe and floods more intense. The poor always suffer most. Pope Francis reminds us that we are one human family sharing a common home, dependent upon one another and the whole of creation. It is our duty to “pay special attention to the most vulnerable”. Please give to the second collection this weekend.


SECOND COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND for PETER’S PENCE which provides Pope Francis with the funds he needs to carry out his charitable works around the world. The proceeds benefit the most disadvantaged victims of war, oppression and disasters. Join our Holy Father as a witness of charity to those who are suffering.
