The J&P group are now meeting via Zoom!

As we were not able to host Mary’s Meals Rags to Riches campaign this year the Justice and Peace group has donated the sum of £320 to Mary’s Meals on behalf of the parish. This sum will be doubled by the government as will all donations up till the end of January. We have received a Thank You letter to the parish. This will be posted on the Justice and Peace notice board at the back of the church.

As we were unable to collect warm garments for the homeless this year the J&P group have, instead, donated £100 each to two local foodbanks – St Maria Goretti’s parish foodbank and St Joseph and St Joachim’s parish foodbank – on behalf of the parish.

Subject: A heartfelt thank you for your precious donation

25th November 2020

St. Jude & St. John Ogilvie Parishioner and the Justice and Peace team

Dear Parishioners
A heartfelt thank you for your precious donation of £320.00.
Your generous support will help to transform the lives of more than 43,000 children living in Bong County, Liberia.
As part of our Double The Love appeal, your kindness will have twice the impact. Until 31 January 2021, public donations made to our appeal will be matched by the UK government, up to £2 million.
Mary’s Meals serves nutritious meals to children at school, giving them the energy to learn and the opportunity to gain an education that can one day be their ladder out of poverty.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, we are determined that our work won’t stop. We are continuing to safely distribute meals to children at school where possible, or at home for those who are not yet able to return to the classroom.
Your gift will be used to help change more young lives, like eight-year-old Massa from Liberia. The promise of a daily meal at Vorkor Public School gives her a chance to enjoy her childhood and hope for a better future.  
She said: “The food I eat at school makes me feel good and happy and helps me to concentrate in class. It also helps my mother as she finds it hard to find food for us all to eat.”
Together, we are bringing the hope of a brighter future to so many children. I thank you, with all my heart, on behalf of the children who eat Mary’s Meals.

Yours sincerely,
Daniel Adams
