Father Hudsons

Good Shepherd Appeal

This year’s St Mary’s Lenten fundraiser will be to support the work of Father Hudson Homes through THE GOOD SHEPHERD APPEAL . This is a tradition among Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Birmingham stretching back more than a century. Children have been given a self-assembly collecting box. Please support your child and encourage them through Lenten sacrificial giving and abstinence to put money that might otherwise have been spent on sweets and treats into the collecting box. Last year schools raised more than £54,000 for Father Hudson’s much needed work.

Father Hudson’s Care is the social care agency of the Archdiocese and a registered charity (number 512992). It helps those in need of all ages, regardless of race or religion, through the Family Support Service in schools, care for disabled adults and elderly people, support for lonely, disadvantaged and vulnerable people in society and by finding foster parents for children in care.
