CONGRATULATIONS TO SISTER BRIGID ARTHUR AO !
If you were at church on Sunday May 29, you would have heard Sister Brigid speak about her involvement with the many refugees and asylum seekers who she’s assisted over the last 30 years. We at HTPM know her of course through her work with the Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project (BASP) – a project that we support. Although not a woman who would seek acclaim for what she does, Sister Brigid was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her advocacy in social justice issues with refugees and asylum seekers, and this recognition is richly deserved!
All the donations in the donation baskets were delivered to BASP this week, and gratefully received. Many thanks to all who contributed! The baskets are once again empty and ready to receive more contributions. Please remember that items must be before the ‘Use by’ date and shop-sealed. Thank you!
OP-SHOP – CAN YOU HELP?
Our wonderful Op-Shop is up and running! It was necessary to close for a few months so that renovations could take place following the fire in the vicarage, but it re-opened for our recent Mini-Market.
*** New Op-Shop volunteers are always needed and welcome. Speak to Jen if you would like to be involved. ***
WINDS OF HOPE – FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN FOR KYEBE MATERNITY CLINIC IN UGANDA
Many of you will be familiar with Matthew and Stella’s project ‘Winds of Hope’ – a charity that works towards improving healthcare services in Uganda and educational outcomes for young women in need. ‘Winds of Hope’ has just launched a fundraising campaign for the Kyebe Maternity Clinic in Uganda, a clinic that serves both as a maternity clinic and general clinic to the local community, but which has deteriorated over the years so that it is no longer safe and clean.
More information is at https://kyebeuganda.org.au/ where there is a full overview of the project and video.
How you can help: • Any contribution is greatly appreciated! There is a donate option on the website above, and all donations are Tax Deductible; • Share on social media; • Forward to anyone you think might be interested.
