Mission is proud to be the Pope's charity for world mission and works with the global Mission family to bring the Church together in compassion and communion. We provide mission dioceses with thre essential support they need to become self-sufficient: local church directly helping local church!

Your donations build much-needed infrastructure, from chapels and school to orphanages, clinics and dispensaries. REquested by the local community, support from Mission transforms lives.

I have also been contacted by CAFOD with similar concerns. We are all aware of the dire situation many charities face when their main funding streams are closed down. If you do regularly give to particular charities but are not able to in the customary manner please check their websites for details about how to give online.

St Mary's of the Rosary & St Aidan's

Our two parishes have money in the bank and some on deposit with the Diocese. We are by no means in dire straits, however, although

the lockdown means that some bills are much reduced, others are ongoing. People who contribute monthly by Standing Order are the

only ones from whom regular income is being received by the parishes. One or two people have asked for details about how to make contributions in this way. If you want to do this please get in touch and I will send you details.

Many thanks, stay safe, and God Bless!
