Organising ‘Away from it all holidays’
Assist in the canteen of our prisons making and serving refreshments and conversing with the visitors; providing gifts throughout the year
Support refugees to settle into school and community
Support and assist our priests with baptism and preparing couples for marriage
Attend wedding fairs
Assist in foodbanks; centres for the homeless and isolated and support the elderly to remain in their own homes.
We continue to support our local Refuges who offer shelter to victims of domestic violence by providing household essentials, toiletries and Christmas gift boxes.
