Late Autumn greetings - we hope you have been well.
We are pleased to inform you that our next container appeal
is now in full swing, this time for cyclone devastated Vanuatu.
Fr. Adrian has received correspondence from Bishop Jean Bosco Beremes SM requesting items for the devastated schools, kindergartens and displaced families: desks, chairs, computers, laptops, library books, household items (crockery, cutlery etc), furniture, stationary, sporting items, tools etc. We have also obtained approval to send tinned food - these would be most welcome.
Please note that the usual collection point remains the same: West-wing doors of the Sacred Heart Monastery Kensington each Saturday morning between 10am-midday. Please do NOT bring donations outside these hours as our able team of volunteers will not be present to receive the items.
For bulky items/large collections, please contact Friends of Kensington Monastery by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Special thanks to the students and staff of St. Brigids Primary School Coogee for organising a Vanuatu awareness campaign and two fundraising events during Lent.
Your generosity and support thus far has touched the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters in the Pacific region - let us continue our efforts in making a difference.
Blessings in abundance,
Friends of Kensington Monastery
