Perfumed Rosary Beads
St John Vianney’s Parish Sister, Sister Mary, who is now housebound, makes ‘real’ Rosary beads from real rose petals thus producing perfumed beads. She buys the accessories from overseas and then takes a couple of months preparing the crushed rose petals, until ready for beading. Sister then hand assembles the beads, the chains and crucifix complete with their presentation box, they are so blessed! Sister produces these to help raise much-needed funds for those in Bangladesh who have had their villages and churches destroyed by floods. A set costs £10 and are available by ringing the Parish Office of St John Vianney, Halewood.
Resettlement Scheme Wish List
In the April edition of the Resettlement Newsletter, it was mentioned that we would be putting a 'wedding list' of items on the website. These items will be used to prepare a house for our family. The wedding list has been renamed as a wish list and you can find it by clicking here.
