Harvest Thanksgiving

Harvest Thanksgiving

Our Harvest Thanksgiving will take place on 25th/26th September when we celebrate the harvest by thanking God for the abundance we receive in our lives not just in food but in the goodness we have. We also remember that although the earth continues to produce in abundance, millions of people go to bed hungry each night. Mahatma Gandhi said “I must live simply so that others may simply live”. This is a time to share what we have.
We take this opportunity to ask people to share with others in need, by bringing a food item (perishable or non perishable) and place it in our sacred space in our Churches. The items will be blessed at our Masses and used in ‘The Kitchen’ or distributed infood parcels to local people in need
