The Shoe Box Appeal or operation Christmas child has been launched again. It is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind and uses gift-filled shoe boxes to show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Last year the English-speaking Community at St Alphonse collected 416 boxes – a huge challenge for this year.
You can help by packing a box, donating bulk items for boxes, ‘buying’ a packed box, donating money. For further information please talk to the Shoe Box Team at the back of church at all weekend Masses throughout October.
