During the 24 hour fast, we will pray for an end to hunger around the world and for the intentions of parishioners. You are invited to join us in the church and online via YouTube.

CAFOD is responding to significant crises across the world this week. We are working with local Church organisations in Haiti to deliver emergency aid to people affected by the catastrophic earthquake and tropical storm. In the tragic situation in Afghanistan, we are working to ensure the safety of our local partners and their communities. We are supporting local aid workers to deliver urgent food and water supplies to hundreds of thousands of people facing extreme hunger in Tigray in Ethiopia, South Sudan and north-east Nigeria. You can read more about how we can all express solidarity with our sisters and brothers affected by these emergencies on the CAFOD website: https://cafod.org.uk/News/Emergencies-news. Your compassion, generosity and prayers have helped us to stand together and enable us to continue to support communities in these difficult times. Thank you.
We are a collection point for Foodshare. Our collection area is just inside the porch doors, but if you leave food outside, out of hours (in a bag or other covering) the building is regularly checked. Foodshare are currently really in need of tinned vegetables and tinned meat, amongst all the regular donations.
During the summer holidays, snacks suitable for children would be welcomed, we all know how much food children can get through in a day in the holidays!

I am Liam Cummins and I come from Ireland. I'm the eldest of four children (three boys and one girl).
As a Mill Hill Missionary (millhillmissionaries.com), I have spent a good period of my adult life ministering in Africa, namely Cameroon and Kenya. I was appointed to England to do Mission Animation (Missio and Mill Hill) for a number of Dioceses in 2012. I really enjoyed this work and it involved a good amount of travelling and meeting lots of people. Read more.
