On the weekend of Sunday 7th May we had an appeal from Father Frank Graham of the Mill Hill Missionaries on behalf of the APF. The Red Boxes are a familiar sight in many of our homes, but it is good to be reminded of the work done by the missionaries and how our ‘small change’ popped into the boxes mounts up over the year and how it benefits others.
In our parish the work is coordinated by Veronica Dean. On Sunday Father Frank presented Veronica with a certificate and a ‘bronze’ medal to mark her 15 years doing this work. Well done Veronica! (There’s a ‘silver’ medal waiting for you in another ten – and we won’t hold our breathe for the ‘gold’!)
Father Frank made the presentation during the refreshments after mass.
