If you have some background in Safeguarding and are able to give up some time to become part of a parish Safeguarding team, please contact Kris Reeds by email via the parish office.
We have one interested person but ideally, it is recommended we set up a team of about 4 people.
APPEAL FROM BISHOP RAYMOND MUPANDASEKWA:
You may remember that last year our Regional Superior in Zimbabwe, Fr Raymond, was ordained Bishop of the Diocese of Chinhoyi, north of Harare. A few days ago he wrote asking if it were possible to have a special appeal here in Liverpool for the poor people of his Diocese.
I quote: “We have been to hell and back. We are with the wounded and the traumatized in safe houses.”
With all the appeals that we have and all the help you give to so many good causes, I do not feel it is right to burden you with yet another special appeal. However, if anyone feels able and would like to give him some help, could you just pop something in an envelope, marked ‘Bishop Raymond’ and I will ensure that he receives it.
Parish Coffee Morning.
We need more volunteers to join the rota to set up, serve and put away. If you would like to join the team please contact the parish office. Any help would be gratefully received

Congratulations to the Zimbabwe Project Group and the Justice and Peace Group who raised £1200 from their table sale on Sunday. Happily, the sum is still rising and donations will be accepted over the next week to ten days. Many thanks to the group who have passed on unsold toiletry items, knitted hats and scarves to the homeless women appeal which we ran before Christmas. A very timely and much-appreciated donation.

The four Synod Questions
After reading and reflecting on the four SYNOD questions we are asked to give our feedback. Go to www.synod2020.co.uk/ resources/survey
If you think you are interested in being a Redemptorist priest of brother this weekend might help you decide or you can have a chat with Fr Charles about your potential vocation.
Anyone interested in being a Redemptoristine sister should visit https://rednuns.com/
Please note that this will take place on the evening of Monday 4 February at 7.00pm in the Fisher-More Hall. This is the result of the recent conversations at the Open Meeting before Christmas, Kris Reeds’ letter in BE Alive and the last meeting of the Core Team on Wednesday. This will provide us with a wonderful opportunity to take stock and see how we can harness all the goodwill and energy that abounds in the parish and go from strength to strength.
