atest press release from the Pastoral Area Office of Greystones & Kilquade Parishes, issued on Thursday, July 15th 2021…
The Catholic parishes of Greystones and Kilquade are supporting a clothing appeal for Syrian children living in the refugee camps located in Lebanon.
We are working with Fr. William Stuart who leads the Schools for Syria project there.
The project team involves about 20 teenagers from the area who are organising everything. But We Need YOUR help!
In Matthew’s gospel we hear Jesus’s call to his followers to clothe those who are naked and that in so far as you did this for the person in need, you did it for Jesus.
We are asking for donations of clean clothing and toiletries for as many girls and boys as possible. If you have any unwanted clean clothing items are for girls and boys aged 3 to 16 years, including t-shirts, shorts dresses, tops, hats, scarfs, light winter clothing, shoes, towels and new underwear items are welcome. Just place them in a bag and we will sort them for you.
A small bag made up of some of the following toiletry items would be much appreciated: toothpaste, toothbrushes, hairbrushes and accessories, soap, face cloths and other personal hygiene items. Donations will be accepted from Sunday 18th to Sunday 25th July.
There are a number of drop off points in the area. The primary drop off location will be Kilian House Family Centre in Greystones from Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm. This is beside The Holy Rosary Church. You can also drop off bags to the designated areas in each of our churches for collection between Sunday 18th to Sunday 25th July.
It would be wonderful if you and your family can get help with this exciting project as we help Syrian girls and boys who have suffered so much in their short lives in this simple way to cloth them. Thank you for your support and generosity.
