9th Dec 2022 - News from West Croyden Mercy Associates

In late October, West Croyden Mercy Associates, led by Florence Baptist, held a Fundraising event for the Aid to the Church in Need for which they received these kind words...

Dear Mercy Associates, West Croydon

On behalf of everyone at Aid to the Church in Need and our suffering brothers and sisters, we want to offer our heartfelt thanks to you for your generous donation of £114.45 for Nigeria, Pakistan and Iraq.

Please can you confirm whehter this donaton was in response to the event we had at St Mary's, West Croydon on 20th October? The kindness of benefactors enables us to support the faithful wherever they are persecuted or in need.

Every year we respond to more than 5,000 requests for aid in around 140 countries, including emergency help for those fleeing persecution. The communities that we will help with your donation often feel forgotten by the wider world, so the support and prayers of your parish mean a great deal, giving them courage and strength for the future.

The money that we raise goes to Bishops, Priests and religious Sisters and Brothers who are involved in projects helping thousands of people who are in desperate need. This includes providing them with food, water, shelter, and spiritual support.

Thank you again and please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.

Your Sincerely,

Jerry Lohan

Community Fundraiser for the Archdiocese of Southwark and the Dioceses of Arundel & Brighton and Portsmouth.
