CRIB OFFERING 2022


In support of the Catholic Children’s Society Southwark Crisis Fund


The Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) is helping local disadvantaged families facing severe hardship due to the cost of living crisis. Through their Southwark Crisis Fund, CCS is providing immediate, practical support to famiies in need. Recently CCS helped a young mother who had to give up work to care for her five year old daughter who had been diagnosed with cancer. Her daughter often felt cold, so the mother would keep the heating on to help her child feel warm and comfortable. The family could just afford the rent and food but had no way to pay their rising energy bills. CCS provided a one off grant to help them get through winter. The mother said:


‘’ I felt so helpless and scared. All I wanted to do was look after my daughter, but I couldn’t stop worrying about how I would pay our bills. You have taken that worry away and now I can focus on caring for my child. Thank you’’


There are many more vulnerable families in need of support and our parish will be donating our Crib Offering to support this important work. Every penny donated will be given out via CCS’s Southwark Crisis Fund to support local families in need. You can donate at the Crib by cash or contactless or via the CCS website with message St Thomas More, Bexleyheath Crib Offering: https://www.cathchild.org.uk/crib/


St Thomas More Crib

I was very happy to see so many families gathered at our crib last Sunday and candles lit to the Holy Family. Thank you Christine and Paul for your time, imagination and work in providing our parish with probably the best crib in the Archdiocese. The crib will be in place until February 2nd, the Feast of the Presentation. Stop and Say a prayer there as you leave Church and ask God to bless our families.
