The parish has adopted a teaching hospital, St.Luke’s, Wolisso, in Ethiopia. Various fund-raising events are arranged throughout the year. Ideas for events are always welcome. This interest was piloted by the late Dr. John O’Neil and it now continues under the auspices of his son, Dr. Patrick O'Neil.
PHOTOGRAPHY OF PARISH EVENTS:
Bernard Metcalfe acts as our "Parish Photographer". He provides photographs of most of our parish "occasions" and then, usually, displays them at the back of the church.
ASSOC. FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH:
Many parishioners hold collection boxes for this cause. Ken Binks (St.Francis') & Pat Ward (St.Clare's) are the parishioners who organise the distribution and collection of the boxes.
These are overseen by Dave Akerman & Cannon Loughlin.
Dave acts as parish treasurer and provides Canon Loughlin with continuous support.
CHILD PROTECTION MATTER:
The parish follows diocesan guidlines in these matters.
