Foodbank     Many thanks to all those who donate to the Foodbank. Unfortunately, demand continues to outstrip supply even though the people of Wirral generally have increased the amount of food donated. The foodbank continues to be quite short of the following items and would be especially grateful if donors could help with any of these: Tinned Meat, Tinned Fish, Tinned Rice Pudding, Pasta Sauce, Tinned Fruit, Instant mash, Sponge Puddings, Biscuits, Long Grain Rice, Soap Powder Tablets, and Deodorants.


*************************************

Heritage Open Day             Wirral’s programme of Heritage Open days will take place from 6 th to 16 th September this year. As part of the programme Holy Name church will be open to visitors on Wednesday 12 September from 10.30 – 17.00. The national theme this year is Extraordinary Women and in this regard Holy Name can point to Sr. Margaret Rope, a famous member of the Arts & Crafts movement, some of whose work is displayed in the stained glass windows. We will need to ensure that two or more people are present during opening hours on the 12 th to greet visitors and let them have a copy of the information we have prepared about Holy Name. If you can be available even for a short time please sign up on the rota at the back of church.

Eucharistic Minister Visits
   We want to update our information about Eucharistic Ministers who visit the sick and housebound. Michael Elliott is trying to collate this information and if you haven’t already been approached by Michael it would be very helpful if you could let him know where you make regular visits. Michael is on 652 8041 and at mikeacelliott@btinternet.com
