Our Lady of Lourdes and St Michaels, Uxbridge

Recently, I went out along the A40 to Uxbridge on behalf of The Good Counsel Network to make an appeal. We were very warmly welcomed by Fr Nicholas Schofield, the recently appointed parish priest, and by all of the parish, some of whom already knew of our work.

The Church is one of beauty, originally built in the 1930, and bears the three stroke mark of its architect on every wooden item in the church. The Masses were celebrated beautifully and with great reverence, which I am sure helps the parishioners to come spiritually closer to God every time they are there.

It was a very productive weekend where we managed to successfully raise money for our work as well as to encourage the faithful to get involved in our work. This is largely due to the volunteers who gave up their time, once again, to help us fight for the lives of unborn children. Without our volunteers we could not continue to function as we currently do.

If you could spare time, either during the week or at the weekend, we need you. Even if it is just for a couple of hours. Everyone has to attend Mass on a Sunday so why not go to a different parish one week, attend Mass there and then help us at the end of Mass.

If you would like to find out more about Volunteering for the Good Counsel Network please call now on 0207 723 1740 and speak to Conor or email on info@goodcounselnetwork.freeserve.co.uk

You can also find an outline of the areas of London we are doing church collections in and the dates on our Website http://www.goodcounselnetwork.com/ see the Events page.

I look forward to hearing from you!!!
