Here is the message we received today:
"We are now seeing over 80 people a day in the foodbank and giving out an average of 175 bags of food. We are therefore feeding about 300 people a day. The people coming to the door are cold and regularly ask us for coats, socks and gloves. Please can you help?!
PLEASE DROP OFF CLEAN OR NEW COATS, SOCKS AND GLOVES FOR MEN, WOMEN OR CHILDREN DIRECTLY TO ST NICK'S PARISH OFFICE AT St Nicholas of Tolentino, Lawford’s Gate, Bristol BS5 0RE BETWEEN 9AM AND 1PM MONDAY TO FRIDAY.
We cannot take any other clothing due to a lack of space.
For further information or to arrange a different delivery time call Robert on 07767 706 163."

Please help St Nicholas' Church with this emergency appeal if you can.


A PRAYER TO ST JOSEPH
In his Apostolic Letter "Patris corde," Pope Francis writes, "Every day, for over forty years, following Lauds I have recited a prayer to Saint Joseph taken from a nineteenth-century French prayer book of the Congregation of the Sisters of Jesus and Mary. It expresses devotion and trust, and even poses a certain challenge to Saint Joseph:
'Glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph, whose power makes the impossible possible, come to my aid in these times of anguish and difficulty. Take under your protection the serious and troubling situations that I commend to you, that they may have a happy outcome. My beloved father, all my trust is in you. Let it not be said that I invoked you in vain, and since you can do everything with Jesus and Mary, show me that your goodness is as great as your power. Amen.'”
