To mark, in a lasting way, the 100th Anniversary of our church the Parish is undertaking two complimentary projects- one physical, looking inward and one charitable, looking outward
Supporting a Poor Clare Mission in Kenya
Myanga is one of the poorest and most populated areas in Kenya. Here the Sisters help handicapped and improvised children get an education, provide medical help for families to combat maleria, TB and HIV/Aids, supply healthy food and vitamin supplements to the sick, arrange accommodation for the destitute and much, much more.
The Parish has committed itself to providing at least £2000 in funds each year to assist the Poor Clare Sisters in their work. Profits from various fund raising activities will be sent directly to the Monastery in Myanga where 100% of the funds are distributed by them locally to ensure those that need the help get it direct
