OLOL has signed up to ‘Love Christmas’, a national initiative to share the Christmas spirit in a practical and prayerful way and give care and hope to all in our community through the distribution of Bags of Kindness.
Donations: Thank you to everyone who has suggested nominations to receive ‘Bags of Kindness’. We now need donations for the bags: gift items you would like to receive (£5-£10 in value) such as biscuits, chocolates, toiletries, small clothing items hats, scarves, battery candles, diffusers, house or Christmas plants. Please wrap your gifts or place them in a festive gift bag with a card simply saying “From you friends at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish”. Leave your donations in the Church Narthex or deliver to 46 Church Walk Thames Ditton.
Deliveries: On Sunday 5th December the parish will be delivering ‘Bags of Kindness’ to local people, in our community, who wish to be included in our ‘Love Christmas’ incentive. We are asking for parishioners to give an hour of their time to help us achieve this. We would love to get our younger parishioners involved, but we are happy for all to help out. If you or your family can spare an hour or so from 2pm on 5th December please contact Katie Cooper at email@example.com. Counting on your generosity. Thank you!
