St Mary’s Lenten fundraiser will be to support the work of Father Hudson's Care through THE GOOD SHEPHERD APPEAL. This is a tradition among Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Birmingham stretching back more than a century. Children are 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.
Father Hudson’s Care is the social care agency of the Archdiocese and a registered charity. 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.
