Fostering Fortnight – 16 to 29 May 2016 - There is a desperate need for new foster carers nationally – there is a need to recruit 7,600 fostering families in England alone.  In particular, foster families are needed to provide homes for teenagers, disabled children, unaccompanied asylum seeking children and sibling groups.  If you have room in your heart, and in your home, then 2016 could be the year that you start to make a positive difference to a child – a positive difference that can last a lifetime.  Caritas Fostering would like to hear from anyone who has an interest in finding out more and please pass on this message to friends and family.  Call us on 0161 817 2250, or email  info@caritasfostering.org.uk or come and meet us at our open afternoons which take place every Friday 1.30 - 3.30pm at Cathedral Centre, 3 Ford Street, Salford, M3 6DP.

 

Parish Centre FunctionWe are looking to have a "Parish Social" to commemorate the 100 years since the Battle of the Somme. This would be held on the evening of Friday 1st July in the Parish Centre. The evening would be an evening of song and entertainment with the room being decorated in the style of 1916. This needs a lot of planning and the reason for this is to see if anyone would like to be involved in making it happen. Please see Fr John if interested.
