FALLING FRUIT IRELAND – FOOD SHARING PROJECT
FallingFruit.ie is a project to harvest the seasonal glut of local fruit (apples, pears, plums, nuts, etc.) in Dublin and to direct it to charities that cater for those in need. Each year hundreds of fruit trees go unpicked. ‘Falling Fruit’ organises a team of volunteers to pick the fruit and distribute it to local charities or other good causes. We also aim to collect surplus vegetables from the grower’s fields – gleaning for charities! This initiative acts as a helpful service to households who have fruit going to waste in their gardens. It also serves the community by directing the surplus fruit to local charities, where possible. Contact bernie@fallingfruit.ie or Tel. 086 2134897 www.fallingfruit.ie if you wish to offer fruit or volunteer. 


HOSPITAL VISITS

The clergy would appreciate being told if parishioners are in hospital, going into hospital, are being transferred or if they have been discharged, and will be pleased to offer pastoral support.  Please understand that the clergy are not automatically informed when parishioners are admitted to hospital. 

 

 TRANSPORT

We have a number of Parishioners who would dearly love to attend Sunday Services, and who require transport.  If you feel in any way that you could offer to collect one or two of these parishioners it would be very much appreciated.  Please contact the parish office or one of the clergy if you can assist.
