OF YOUR CHARITY please pray for:

the sick in mind or body and those who care for them;
all who are struggling spiritually, emotionally and materially due to the pandemic;
for those who mourn:

for all who died recently
and those whose anniversaries occur about this time

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them,
may they rest in peace. Amen

Mary’s Meals: Resources for Children 

This great charity are delighted to share an activity pack for children based on excerpts from Magnus’ best-selling book The Shed That Fed A Million Children. Through these stories, children can travel from the Highlands of Scotland to the heart of Africa, where they will meet some of the people who inspired our work to feed hungry children in schools. This is most suitable for children in upper primary and lower secondary stages. https://d1345tgcm1bzpm.cloudfront.net/assets/global/The_Shed_That_Fed_school_activity_book.pdf
