With regard to the 'Homes for Ukraine' government scheme
With regard to the 'Homes for Ukraine' government scheme, we are researching two options to recommend to parishioners to help with 'matching' potential hosts with families in Ukraine who would like to come to the UK. What will be extremely important for this scheme to work effectively for both hosts and guests, is the creation of support groups around the host families. These support groups will help the hosts themselves, as well as the Ukrainian guests.

Small grants for those who are struggling with cost of living
The Synod is here!
Pope Francis announced in May that there would be a world-wide listening process to help the Church as we journey together in faith. Last week Bishop David opened our diocesan phase. The Synod is about learning to speak graciously and listen graciously to one another, and discern where the Holy Spirit is leading us.

DONATION FOR ST MARYS
Please find below the donation webpage URL for the parish. This is live and ready to take donations.
There are three ways to donate:
2) Donation can go through the online Virginmoneygiving. They included details of the parish name and area or parish priest (Easter offering) that the donation is intended.
To use the Donation page on the main Diocesan website go direct to: to https://northamptondiocese.org/donate/
3) From enquiries we have received we understand that some of our parishioners would prefer to donate by telephone instead of via our online donation facilities. Therefore, in addition to the online donation facilities currently available, we are proposing to begin a ‘Giving Tuesday’ commencing on Tuesday the 5th of May 2020. Each Tuesday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, people will be able to call this number, 01604 712065, and donate to your parish. All they will require is their debit or credit card to hand when they call. They can make a one-off donation to cover their missed Sunday offerings or call each week knowing their offering is going to the parish they wish.
