A sincere Thank You to all who supported our Annual Lenten Appeal 2017. The amount the appeal raised for 2017 was £239843.98. These funds have been transferred to the Bursar General for mission projects.

Famine relief, ongoing awareness of HIV & Aids, Transport, Water, Education, Justice, Village Churches, Special Needs, Refugees, Orphans and Orphanages.

Parish Mission Appeals 2017
We at St. Patrick’s would like to thank most sincerely The Bishop, Priests, Religious and Laity in the Diocese of Brentwood and the Diocese of Nottingham for receiving us during the year 2016 for the Annual Mission Appeal. We would especially like to thank all the parishes we were invited, received and blessed to visit during the year. Through our Magazine ‘Africa’ we look forward to continuing to nurture the seeds of mission sown.
In 2017 and with the blessings of Bishop Richard Moth, Bishop of Arundel and Brighton and Bishop Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia, we are delighted to be visiting and making our Annual Mission Appeal in the parishes of Arundel and Brighton Diocese and East Anglia Diocese. We look forward to meeting and making new friends as we journey around the different parishes.
Mission Days 2017
Sincere thanks to everyone who attended our weekend Mission Days throughout the month of July at Oscott College – Birmingham. Buckfast Abbey – Devon. Hinsley Hall – Leeds and St. Joseph’s Parish – Epsom. For Fr. Joseph and I it was truly a delightful, enjoyable, energising, encouraging and spiritually uplifting experience meeting and chatting to each group. I hope the experience was similar for you and that you will encourage others to join us at the 2018 Mission Days. For those unable to join us you were as always remembered in our Mass and prayers.
Thank you for all your prayers and support and may you and your family continue to experience God’s blessings.
Fr. Patrick McCallion
