I have been in contact with a local supermarket (that offers value for money), to arrange for food and grocery only vouchers. This arrangement will give those we help the dignity of choosing for themselves what they need and want. I hope to raise the monies needed for the vouchers and have already put to one side donations of £1,400. Further donations of money are most welcome as we have been helping over 50 families and I think we may have more that will need our support.
We are looking for food, presents for children and teenagers, and money to buy food only vouchers.
Please leave any donations at St Joseph’s Church, York Road, Southport PR8 2AY
Communion outside Church is not allowed as we are not to meet more than one person from another household outdoors.
Opening church for private prayer at this time is not possible. Sunday Mass will continue to be streamed. We are in the process of upgrading our internet access which will give more opportunities to communicate and pray together.
As the situation changes we will keep you updated.
With my best wishes. Stay safe! Fr Atli
