LITTLE KING'S MOVEMENT
The Little King’s Movement once a year conducts a Door Knock and Church Appeal. The Movement caters for people with disabilities in social and spiritual activities. There is no Government funding and the Movement is staffed by volunteers. Each year the call for our services are increasing. The Movement, though based on Catholic beliefs, is truly ecumenical, and all members and people with disabilities are welcomed and respected for their own beliefs. There is no charge for any of the services provided by the Movement. The appeal for our Parish will be conducted on the weekend of 3rd & 4th February. In previous years this Parish has been very generous even in the most difficult financial times, for which volunteers are most grateful.
