We have a number of Catholic charities we regularly support by Second Collections ~ CAFOD, the church in Bamenda, Africa, Pax Christi, Catholic Missions at Home and Abroad. Each of our congregations also chooses from time to a charity of their own to support by small fundraising projects.
During the next two years, the parish has chosen a local charity to support. Young People and Children First is based in Thatcham and gives a home to young people (aged 16-25) who are leaving care or who are homeless. They currently run two homes where young residents are provided with personalised support in a family environment. This helps them to develop essential life skills, which along with the support they offer for residents to get into education, training or work prepares them for independent living.
