Christmas cards to Gaza

This Christmas we are twinning with a parish in Gaza to show our solidarity with the Catholic Christians who are suffering in the Middle East; especially in Gaza.

Each of you are asked to write a Christmas Card to Holy Family Parish, Gaza. You can then drop off your card at the church in the assigned box. I will then post all the cards in a parcel to the parish priest of Holy Family Parish with covering letter saying who we are and he will then distribute the cards to his parishioners for Christmas.

Please address your card to:
Fr Mario de Silva and Parishioners, Holy Family Parish, Gaza

Boxes will be available until Sunday 24th November.
