Dear Brothers and Sisters

Just a brief and sincere note of thanks to you for your contributions to the collection (including the hundreds of gift aid envelopes) for the Papal visit. This has raised £24,822.16 and in addition, we have had a donation of £1,000 from the Abbot of Ampleforth. Please continue to pray for the success of the visit and as soon as we have more detailed arrangements, I will be in touch with all parish priests.
