Autumns greetings - we hope you're all well.
We are happy to report that the next container appeal is officially underway - destination: PNG. Sr. Mary Drum (MSC) is setting up a shelter/hostel for disadvantaged women and children. She has written directly to Fr. Adrian asking for assistance. Items required include:
- children's books & toys
- musical instruments
- bicycles, tricycles & scooters
- furniture, including school desks and chairs- cutlery, crockery and any kitchen utensils
- computers, laptops (good working order) & printers (with full ink cartridge and an additional spare if possible)
NO CLOTHING (unless packaged and brand new).
As always, we request that you respect the dignity of our brothers and sisters by donating quality, not broken or unusable items that are no longer needed.
FKM will be accepting donations each Saturday morning from 10:15am - midday at the West Wing doors of Kensington Monastery. Please do NOT drop off donations at other times as volunteers are not present to cart the goods to the storage area.
Sometimes, we can experience great freedom in letting go of material things - there is more to be gained personally by letting go of what consumes us, rather than holding on. There is truly a transformative spiritual element, the challenging but grace-filled concept of receiving by giving.
Please spread the word and give generously.
Thanking you in advance for your generosity and support as always.
