Parcel Liturgies

On 4th December, we were visited by representatives from Fylde Foodbank, local SVP conferences, Fylde Coast YMCA Harbour House, Caritas Care – Vincent House, StreetLife and St. Cuthbert’s Soup Kitchen to receive and give thanks for the Christmas hampers which pupils had collected in your forms. The sorry tale of ‘Old Bert’ which we heard, reminded Fr. David of his real-life ‘Mr Suitcase’, a man who frequently called at his parish for help. As he recalled his memories, he reminded us how important it is to try to see the face of Jesus in all who ask for our help, as our love for God is often tested through the cries of our brothers and sisters in need.
