Live Simply Book of Recipes and Tips

To celebrate the anniversary of our Live Simply journey as a Parish, we are producing a book of recipes and tips which will then be sold in aid of CAFOD.  Everybody is invited to send in a recipe or tip – we would like the book to reflect the rich diversity of our Parish community with recipe contributions from across the world.
So we are looking for:

  • recipes from the rich diversity of our Parish community;
  • the use of seasonal produce,
  • locally sourced;
  • ideas for the use of left-overs;
  • the use of less red meat;
  • recipes from children – for children to make. 

Pop Francis has called upon us all to live more simply, sustainably and in solidarity with those in poverty.  This is one way that we can helpeach other by sharing our own ideas and recipes.

Please leave your recipe or tip in the box at the back of church or email them to



Parishioner Louise McCarthy will be undertaking a 50km trek called Trekfast The Peaks on Saturday 1 September in aid of Make-a Wish Foundation UK.  

Make-a-wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.  Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; the wishes are varied, personal and life-changing. Make-a-wish goes above and beyond to grant amazing wishes to very amazing children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most. Because a child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope.

Louise has a target of £200 for fundraising for this charity and would really appreciate any help parishioners can givce to reach this target.  If you are able to make a donation, please do so at the Justgiving page by clicking here.
