Food Drive for Refugees.
After 4-5 weeks of collecting food, toiletries and blankets, our parish has delivered 3 car loads to the House of Welcome for Refugees at South Granville.
The Drive has now ceased at this time. Later we may resume the Food Drive as the need is great.
However the response to the Food Drive from most of the parishes in the Blue Mountains Deanery has been most generous and we will hopefully be collaborating with the other parishes to continue our outreach in these most difficult times.
In our opinion, the members of our parish have been looking for opportunities to help people, including families, who are struggling during this horrible virus. It is an example of the Christian care and compassion that has been a hallmark of our faith ever since Jesus himself practised and prioritised care and concern during his ministry.
Those who can are encouraged to donate supermarket food vouchers or money to either the Jesuit Refugee service, jrs.org.au/donate-now or the House ofWelcome stfrancis.org.au/house-of-welcome/make-donation-house-welcome.
