ST PETER’S LIFELINE
As many of you will know, through St Peter’s Lifeline we have been supporting a poor Kenyan student, Andrew Kithati, through his secondary school education. This was an initiative started by our Youth Group and the parish has been pleased to honour this commitment. We are happy to say that Andrew will soon have completed his final year, and our last cheque has been issued. We know that he is very grateful to the parish for making his education possible, so a big thank you to everyone who has supported him these past few years.
Dementia Friendly Harvest Festival
On Sunday 7th October St Michael’s hosted a special Dementia Friendly Harvest Festival Service. Fr Bede led the Service and gave us plenty to think about in his homily. The idea was conceived by members of Christians Together in Shepton Mallet and enjoyed by all who attended. After the service there was a warm welcome for everyone in the parish room with tea and delicious cake on offer.
Collett Festival Success
Collett Festival on June 9th was blessed with fine weather and some willing helpers. Though not ‘sold out’ the Giant Tombola, together with book sales raised an amazing £465. Thanks to some generous donations, this has since been topped up to £500! Huge thanks to all concerned.
