Help our Children’s Village – Marathon tomorrow…

Fundraising for Sunrise Children’s Village – India

As many of you know I spent some time in India. During his stay I became very involved in a project of our community there – The Sunrise Children’s Village – an orphanage (with a difference) set up by the Schoenstatt Fathers after the Tsunami hit India a few years ago,

This month – on the 29th April – my  brother-in-law, Brian Macrae is running the Greater Manchester Marathon to raise money for the Children’s Village. Sponsor form’s are available to download here – or get in touch and I will send you one…

We will be following the race live – Bryan’s race number is 6373 – and you can keep up with us on our Facebook page – Schoenstatt Family England


Please make a donation if you can – or even better – get a form and ask your neighbours, colleagues and friends to help out.

Many thanks for your support for all our projects.

God Bless
Fr. Andrew

Fr. Bryan is 60

Fr Bryan qualifies soon for a bus-pass and many other advantages of crossing the sixty-boundary. I would like to invite you to a simple celebration on Friday 20th April to Evening Prayer followed by a get-together in St John Fisher Hall. We would have a shared supper – so could you bring something Italian – pasta or the like or something for a pudding to follow. There would be a bar on the night.

May I request that you do not give presents. Instead may I invite you to sponsor some of the restoration work in Kearsley Mount Cottage? We need a new living room carpet (about £400.00). We would like to put tiles in the two bathrooms (about £200.00) and we would like to replace the faulty window in the cottage meeting room (about £300.00) Also we would like to put in new blinds on the windows (about £400). If you could make a contribution it would be gratefully received

I am looking forward to welcoming you on the night. Fr. Bryan (To download the poster click here)
