Today we will be collecting for the homeless here in Edinburgh, the gifts being distributed via the St. Catharine’s Homeless Project.
If anyone can help deliver the parcels to St. Catharine’s, either later today or at the beginning of the week, it would be appreciated so that the Sisters can distribute the gifts at Christmas.
Today: Lists are at the back of the Church for Readers, Altar Servers, Eucharistic Ministers, Passkeepers and volunteers to assist at the social events in the Hall after the Christmas Masses, to indicate their availability over the Christmas and New Year period. The social events in the Hall are in particular need of helpers. If you are willing to help, please sign up today. This is the last chance for all the lists.
