WOOL APPEAL Fr Stephen and Sr Onnah would like to send a huge thank you to all the parishes that donated wool for the project in Hydebank. We’ve had an amazing amount of wool donated from across the city. Fr Stephen has arranged for someone to collect all the donated wool. They will be in direct contact with the parishes to arrange collection. We now have plenty of wool for the women to start knitting hats and scarfs for the homeless and we no longer need any more donations of wool. Thank you to everyone who donated.
