FARESHARE

From Fairshare Today in the UK 8.4 million people are living in food poverty. At the same time, thousands of tonnes of edible food are going to waste. At least 270,000 tonnes of this surplus food comes from the food and drink industry and this equates to 650 million meals.

FareShare are tackling food waste and fighting hunger. We are on a mission to get as much of this surplus food from around the UK to charities and community groups to make it into meals for vulnerable people.

Could you help us? We are looking for volunteers to join our fantastic team at our Merseyside regional centre based in Speke. We need warehouse assistants and drivers to pick, pack, stack and distribute food. Our warehouse is open Monday-Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm but you can volunteer at times to fit around you.

Home Missions:

Sunday 15th September is Home Mission Sunday. We are invited to find ourselves in the Gospel story as we accompany the characters who call out, ‘Rejoice with me!’ These words express the joy of finding something, or someone they had lost. Imagine the joy in your own heart when you see someone you love coming home to Church, because they are seeking, or have found Christ. Occasionally this happens by direct divine intervention, but more often we are called to be the face of Christ, praying for, inviting and welcoming those we love into a relationship with Him.

Thankfully we are not alone in this task. The Home Mission Office is a national organisation that helps the local Church engage in the vital mission of Evangelisation. This weekend, they ask for our prayers and our financial support through the second collection. Our prayers help them to be attentive to the Holy Spirit who directs their work, and our donations to the second collection will enable them to help the local Church share the joy of the Gospel throughout England and Wales.  In short, the second collection helps them to help us. For more information about the Home Mission Office or to donate online please visit www.homemission.org.uk

There will be a retiring collection after Masses
