We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the Parish of Our Lady of England in Storrington for hosting our Memorial Mass this year. Every year we hold this Mass to remember and pray for supporters, volunteers, friends and loved ones who have passed away.

On Saturday the 4th of November we made it through the torrential rain and gathered in the beautiful church in Storrington. Around twenty people came to celebrate and remember with us and Fr Charles led us through a beautiful liturgy with music, readings and prayers suitable for the occasion.

One Little Pig in The Philippines

One Little Pig in The Philippines

Four Years ago, this November, Typhoon Haiyan, the largest storm to make landfall, hit The Philippines. Schools, parishes and individuals generously donated to our emergency appeal which raised £5.4 Million in total. The response from schools was fantastic with a huge range of fundraising activities arranged from cake sales to 24-hour basketball marathons.

We have a team of Schools Visitors who can offer an interactive assembly for your primary school which is especially accessible for Key Stage One as it is includes the story of the 3 Little Pigs.

Advent is on the way

With Advent quickly approaching our volunteer visitors can also help ensure our global family are part of your reflections and celebrations.
