Parish Lent Project


Last weekend we had an appeal at all Masses by Mr Robin Aitken on behalf of our Lent Project, the Oxford Food Bank. From the Second Collection and other donations we have thus far raised £2197.41 (inc. Gift Aid).

The Oxford Food Bank collects good quality fresh food from the local supermarkets and wholesalers, and delivers it for free to numerous local registered charities. For every £1 the Food Bank receives in donations, it delivers at least £25 worth of fruit, vegetables, bread, and dairy products. Whilst the Food Bank is a very efficient operation, it does need funds to keep going. For more information, take a look at the website at

There is still more time to make donations. They should be sent to the Parish Priest, Fr Anton, before Low Sunday (Divine Mercy Sunday), 27th April.
