Love Christmas Campaign 2022
Another tremendous success
Many thanks to everyone who so generously supported the parish Love Christmas Campaign. It was a tremendous success again this year due to all the wonderful donations, help, support, and prayers. This meant we could share God’s love for us with so many locally who are in real need and poverty. Along with St Martin de Porres, St Joseph’s, Sacred Heart and St Mary’s Primary Schools and St Mary’s and Sacred Heart parishes we were able to donate 486 gift bags supporting over 1000 individuals this Christmas. We supported families with young children, the elderly, the lonely and isolated, young carers, children from broken homes, children in care, young people leaving the care system, and many others. So, thank you again to all those involved for all your love, kindness, and generosity for those in need.
Thank you so much for arranging this, the gifts are amazing, and they will go to our vulnerable families.
We would like to say a huge thank you to you and the children at the schools for the wonderful gifts, they are absolutely beautiful, and the children will love them. Please pass on our thanks and we are so grateful to you for thinking of us. Merry Christmas.
We are just grateful to be able to have been part of spreading the kindness of Christmas to some of our families who need it the most. Thank you for all your help to support us to be able to do this.
We would like to say a huge thank you to you and the children at St Bernadette’s for the wonderful gifts, they are absolutely beautiful, and the children will love them. Please pass on our thanks and we are so grateful to you for thinking of us.
I have received a text on my work phone last night from a family we gifted a bag to who is living in the local refuge and the child attending with us at one of our family centres, the text read:
Thank you very much for this gift. Thank you for helping me so much with (child’s name). I’m going through difficult times now. Thank you again for everything.’
I collected very generously packed bags from Holy Family School this morning, which have been given to the Refuge Worker today to give to some other families and individuals that are living in refuge after fleeing Domestic Violence.
