The ‘Giving Tree’. This year our Parish linked up with the Saint Vincent de Paul Society to help children who are less fortunate. SVP has sent a note to thank Gardiner Street Parish.
“On behalf of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, we wish to acknowledge with sincere gratitude the generous contribution of Gardiner Street Family Mass Group to this year’s Christmas Appeal.
We had an excellent response to the Giving Tree and Food Appeal campaigns and the donations of gifts, vouchers and food enabled us to make Christmas that little bit brighter and happier for the people we support.
Please accept the best wishes of all our volunteers and staff in the Society for a very happy and healthy New Year. We look forward to your continued support in 2018”.
