PYROHY production will begin on Thursday, 6 October. As always, we are seeking volunteers to assist in this parish ministry.
NORTHAMPTON FOODBANK DONATIONS:
There continues to be a dire need for foodstuffs to assist our neighbors. As you know, our parish’ remit from the food bank is to contribute baby-food, but any other non-perishables will be accepted gladly. There is a cupboard for the collection of donations in the church hall.
Needed food items: canned meats, beef stew, coffee, syrup, jello/pudding, applesauce, rice (everything). Our church is responsible for baby food (clients are able to take as much baby food as possible). There is a cupboard for the collection of donations in the church hall.
Donations of money and holiday meats are always appreciated. All non-perishable items are appreciated.
