Parish celebrates link with Child Aid

Wednesday March 24th 2010

Homeless children living in a manhole are helped by the charity Child Aid.There will be a celebration of a very special link with Russia and republics of the former Soviet Union at the Parish of St Peter on Palm Sunday, March 28.

The St Peter and St James Charities Action Group has organised a Chid Aid Day to celebrate the parish’s link with the Child Aid, a charity which transforms the lives of young people in Belarus, Moldova, Russia and the Ukraine.

Since the break-up of the former Soviet Union, the number of children forced to live on the streets of Russia and the Republics has spiralled.

Through Child Aid’s Helping Hands Appeal, St Peter and St James in Belfast has been supporting these children through prayer and by sending funding for food, boots and winter coats which will literally enable some to survive the minus 40 degree Siberian winters.

Child AidAs part of Child Aid Day, the special preacher at Morning Prayer in St Peter’s will be Richard Norton, a Child Aid fundraiser. The service will be followed by an Eastern European lunch in the parish hall, which will be addressed by Child Aid manager Martin Wilcox.

All are welcome and anyone wanting further information should contact the Parish Office on 028 9077 7053.
