SVP - Thank you to parishioners who were extremely generous at the Christmas SVP collection. Over £900 was raised to be put to good use as soon as possible. . . . The Franciscan Community of Friars at Woodford Green thank all the very kind people who gave gifts and donations for the Brothers here. We shall remember you all in our prayers and wish you many blessings of the Lord in this New Year! - Fr. Donal O.F.M. . . . To the volunteers who turned up to clean the church, the tree and crib—the work of the Parish Council and friends, the flower arrangers, choir and music group, readers, ministers, servers, ushers and sacristans—thank you for responding in such good numbers.
