28 backpacks for St Mary’s Lenten Campaign

As part of our Lenten efforts this year, St Mary’s Shrine supported the Mary’s Meals charity, which provides meals for starving schoolchildren in poor countries.

Thus, 28 packs plus £20 in donations were collected at St Mary’s Shrine.

The bags have already made their way to Scotland to be sorted.

Many thanks for the loving engagement of St Mary’s parishioners in doing this work.
