Thank You to St Joseph’s Retford

A HUGE thank you to Fr Bill Bergin and the parishioners of St Jospeh’s Retford for their amazing response to the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. Over the Christmas period the parish have collected 3,542.69  – an amazing amount.

Fr Bill told us

“The people of the parish of St Joseph’s in Retford have always been enthusiastic supporters of the work of CAFOD and although they had raised large amounts of finance for two major projects since September, they were determined to help the people of the Philippines. The parish decided that their Christmas collections would be given to CAFOD. The generosity of the parish raised £3,542.69. Over the years  this Hallam parish has been largely inspired by the Lord’s words in chapter 25 verses 31-41 of the Gospel of Matthew.”
