Romanian Links - "Our Lady of Mercy"

 
One of our parishioners working with Sr Rose Carmel has been involved with a group called the Association of Our Lady of Mercy which works with the poor and marginalised in Romania. Visit the website to find out more about their work
 
Below is a powerpoint presentation which was made to explain to school children the work of Sr Rose and the Association of Our Lady of Mercy.  It clearly shows the inequalities between the rich and poor in Romania.

Outreach Work - Angels
 
The association has established outreach groups, one of which works with the elderly.  These elderly adults make "angels", which due to infirmity and the cold weather they are only able to make two a day. 
 
 
By buying a christmas Angel (like the one in the photo) we can help to support the excellent work of Sr Rose and the Association of Our Lady of Mercy.
 
Angels are on sale at the back of our churches or from;
Rebecca Parker, and Theresa (Carnforth)
 
Because of the work involved we ask for a minimum donation of £5
