ST PAUL’S PANTRY des­per­ately needs food, health and clean­ing items: A bas­ket is in the church foy­er for food, health and clean­ing donations.

Please give generously.


Stan­more Nurs­ing Home Gifts:  As is our usu­al cus­tom we take a small gift to each patient at the Stan­more Nurs­ing Home (OPAL) in Cam­bridge St at Christ­mas time. Your dona­tion no mat­ter how small helps the par­ish to pay for a selec­tion of equal value gifts — usu­ally chocol­ates, or some­thing suit­able for those patients who are dia­bet­ic.  Ruth and Jen­nifer usu­ally do the gift shop­ping.  Before Covid-19’s restric­tions we would sing car­ols while we walked around and gave out our gifts, how­ever we are prob­ably not going to be able to that again this year, but we will check again with the staff closer to the time.  If you would like to donate please place in an envel­ope so marked in the offer­tory plate, or donate online ref­er­ence “Nurs­ing Home”.   Many thanks for your generosity!


Lea MacNeil has jam, con­serves, pickles and vari­ous sauces to sell; please email her at to order them from her.

All pro­ceeds go to St Luke’s Parish.
