During the season of Lent instead of 'giving up' something for Lent our Crafty Kids
will be 'taking on' something -
the idea of 40 Days and 40 tins.
They will be collecting 1 tin per day and then bringing 40 tins to the Church
at the end of Lent.
Whilst tinned food is the first thing one thinks of these items may also contain personal hygiene goods
or things tailored towards younger children.
These will be then given as a gift from the Church to those in need through the Rainbow Centre.
We can all join the Crafty Kids in this venture.
The Lent Course this year will have the subject of Forgiveness.
Meetings will take place after the Thursday Mass on
14th and 21st March and 4th and 11th April.
The Stations of the Cross will be recited at 1 pm each Monday before the 2 pm Mass
