Thank you from Kirkcaldy Foodbank:  When we started the Kirkcaldy Foodbank, we were reacting to a need which those who attended the first meeting were in complete agreement about.  The emergency support for those in need of food … the staggering reality of food poverty in a ‘wealthy’ society.   Our aim to feed those families and individuals who are hungry and cannot afford to feed themselves for a variety of reasons.  If anything this crisis has increased since we set up and our hope to be ‘helping out’ for a short time and ‘bridging a gap’ was soon dashed.  The ongoing need has meant that we are now a vital support for those who are struggling in the Kirkcaldy area. EVERY donation is so very much appreciated and vital if we are to continue to tackle this crisis until other avenues can be found to ensure people do not find themselves in these critical situations. As we move from 2017 into the new year we hope that 2018 will see positive steps forward in the aim to make food poverty in the Kirkcaldy area a thing of the past.  

 

Fr Brian: Presentation envelopes are still available. If you would like to contribute, please leave your envelope in the collection plate. We are hoping to make the presentation after Mass on Tuesday 6th February, with refreshments in the Church Hall. Everyone welcome.

 

St Andrew’s High School Weekly Mass takes place during term time every Thursday at 1.10pm in the school Oratory.  Pupils are encouraged to attend and participate in the Sacramental life of the school.

 

We Have Found the Messiah Cluster Consultation: For a number of reasons, the process has taking much longer than anticipated. Now that he has received all the reports, the Archbishop is currently consulting Deaneries, after which he will present his proposals at cluster level, involving parishioners. Following due process, the proposals will then be discussed by the Council of Priests before final decisions are made. I will try to keep you informed as best I can.                    Fr James
