Our last meeting on Monday 10th November was very enjoyable and fruitful – lovely and encouraging to have so many suggestions and ideas to choose from! Following a brainstorming session we decided our branch project challenge should be SAOIRSE Women’s Refuge, Tallaght Village (www.saoirsewomensrefuge.ie) Our aim going forward is to foster an ongoing relationship with this local centre.
Following discussion with them, we are undertaking to provide simple needs of the refuge by asking members and indeed parish families interested to donate or to bring along a low cost household item specifically requested to our monthly meeting (from toothbrushes/toothpaste/pack of biscuits, etc.)
At our next meeting on Monday 8th December at 8pm one of the Managers of SAOIRSE will be coming to update us on their work and accept our first batch of gifts. They are so very grateful for the support we plan to give them.
For the Christmas season they have asked for small gifts suitable for teenagers aged 13-17 so can we ask each person planning to attend to bring along a suitable item to hand over on the evening OR items can be handed to any of our members.
PLANNING AHEAD !! Do you deserve a treat after coping with the Christmas season? We will be having our New Year celebration night out on Monday 12th January….dining out together in a venue affordable and suitable for anyone wishing to come along…..we extend a warm invitation to old and new faces to join with us ….to enable us book a suitable venue, please let one of our members know or phone Valerie or myself before 8th December.
The Mothers Union Dublin Diocese supply items for Premature babies to Dublin Hospitals on an on goingbasis, these are greatly appreciated. Do you have spare wool? Do you or any member of your extended family knit?
Please ring the parish office (462 6006) to obtain knitting patterns for matinee jackets or baby hats or contact myself.
Finally, our love, thoughts and support are with those known to us who have very seriously ill family members. Miriam Gibney
