Outreach and Charity

“I will prove to you that I have faith by showing you my good deeds.”
Saint James Chapter 2 Verse 18

Saint James calls on us to prove our faith by carrying out good deeds; calling on prayer for inspiration and support but carrying our faith through to helping our fellow man with practical support. This is a call echoed many times in the scriptures but one which we all find difficult to respond to, especially if it involves being in the public eye.

Each in their own quiet way, there are examples of members’ “outreach” in our Parish which should be encouraged, supported and even emulated by even more actions.

Each of these actions is a prayer and a demonstration of our faith. As most of these actions are carried out by people not seeking the limelight please contact the Parish Priest (fr.george.mathew@rcaob.org.uk) if you would like to become more involved in any aspect of putting our faith into action.
