Our Lady of Fatima
Please let us know if you would like to host the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in your home for a while and we’ll ensure the Legionaries of Mary deliver her to you in one piece. I would encourage you to consider taking part and spreading the devotion to Our Lady in our parish even more. Br. Martin.
May Ball Fundraiser – THANK YOU!
Thank you for your amazing support for Greenwich & Bexley Hospice via the May Ball! It was a great night and we cannot express enough thanks to all those who helped before, during and after, to organise the event, decorate the hall, organise the food (thanks to Br Gordon for his help!), run parts of the evening and host the fundraising elements and all parishioners who supported us by buying raffle tickets and making prize donations even if they could not attend.
Finally we must thank all the businesses who donated prizes – a list of them can be found at the back of the Church and on our website: they supported us – please show them your support – and when you do, tell them how you heard about them!
Jack Evans who is the Community Fundraiser for the Hospice adds his thanks: I wanted to say a huge thank you for putting on your wonderful event. As soon as I entered the building I was in awe of the effort that you and your team had put in. From securing such a wonderful selection of prizes to putting on some of the best entertainment I have seen at a local event! It was truly exceptional. I don’t have the words to thank you enough but I can say that it means the world to everyone here at the Hospice – the funds raised are invaluable to helping us continue our work. So, through all this effort, including a matched funding amount, we managed to raise a staggering £4,500.
This great event for all Parishioners is only 3 weeks away!! Do join in the fun and enjoy a great range of international food, cakes and ice-creams while listening to music. For the thirsty among us there will be soft drinks AND a PIMMS, BEER and WINE tent. So come along with your garden chairs, picnic blankets and sunshades and relax in the sun (don’t forget your sun cream!)
