CAFOD Writes

Dear Father, Thank you to all parishioners at St Francis of Assisi for your generous support for CAFOD this year and for your latest donation of £802.50 which we received on 31 October 2018. Through your support many more villages like Longora’s will have access to clean drinking water. Thank you so much for all your support this Family Fast Day and for your prayers for our brothers and sisters living in poverty. Please know that your gifts and prayers will really make a lasting difference to the lives of so many. Our Parish Pastoral Council Meeting The PPC meets on Monday 19th Nov at 7pm in Llay – to be followed by a TCC Presentation at 8pm, to which everyone is invited to learn more about TCC. Our Parish has been a fully paid up member of this alliance of diverse groups, tackling social injustice through community organising since 1995. Indeed Chris Pilsbury, a now deceased member of our parish, was for a number of years the lead organiser in Wrexham. It was felt that due to the change in the parish community over those years it would be prudent to invite TCC to come to the parish to inform and remind us what this organisation is all about and our role within it. Please make every effort to attend if you can. Thank you.
