CAFOD Harvest Fast Day

Because  1st October was a feast day for us we have moved the Harvest Fast Day to Friday 8th 

With COP26 (the 26th UN Climate Change Conference) due to take place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November, CAFOD's focus this Autumn is focused on the Climate Crisis. You can read more about it on CAFOD's Web Page

Spreading the Word

Many parishioners know Santos who (with his sister Leona) has been an altar server both at St George’s and at St Theresa’s.  

Santos has recently graduated at the University of Portsmouth but will be staying on for a year as a Relay Worker, working alongside the Christian Union. Relay is all about helping people love and serve Jesus. Santos is embarking on an exciting year of mission, training and discipleship.
