Click here to sign up for the 150 club
As your Parish Priest I would ask you to please consider supporting the 150 Club. It is an excellent way for you to help to raise much needed funds for your Parish. Similar clubs already run successfully in many Parishes throughout the country.
Since the start of the 150 Club in 2001 at Our Lady of Lourdes some of the money raised has been used for renewing the roof of the Church, the redecoration of the interior of the Church, electrical work, a new ceiling in the Narthex, pointing of the church and hall brickwork and major renovations in the Presbytery. This work has cost many thousands of pounds.
However we have many more projects planned for the churches as renovations and repairs are constantly required to maintain the buildings so that good standards can prevail for the enjoyment of all. The long term upkeep of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Anne’s Churches will always need to be budgeted for so that we have a place for worship.
Each month there will be a Prize Draw. The amount available for prizes will depend on the number of members we have subscribing. The more members
we have the more money will be available for prizes. We are hoping to have at least 150 members.
Every member of the scheme pays £5.00 per calendar month either by Standing Order or annually by cheque. Of course you can pay more each month, £10.00
would enable you to have two chances in the prize draw etc. If you are interested in joining the 150 Club please spare a few minutes of your time to complete the application form which should be returned to the Presbytery.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I know it is another call on your hard earned money but this scheme at least gives you a chance to win some reward. At the same time you will be supporting your Parish Church, Hall, Presbytery and all the expenses that the upkeep entails.
God Bless you and your families.
Fr. Paul Vilangappara, mop.
