As a College, we continue to pray for peace in Ukraine and wish to respond generously to the many appeals for help and support for those who are fleeing their homeland.
Our co-ordinated response to supporting those affected by the Ukraine crisis will be to organise a number of items to be collected within College and then to be delivered to:
• Morrisons, Cannock
• The White Eagle Club in Stafford
• St John the Baptist Parish Church, Tamworth
They have identified the following items for collection:
Hot Water Bottles
Energy bars, bottled water, soap, toothpaste, toiletries, plasters and medical items, Calpol, formula & baby food
Cupboard Food/Energy Bars
First Aid Kits/Painkillers/Flu Medicine
Feminine Hygiene Products
These items will be collected in the COLLEGE CHAPEL. We will keep any medical items and medications in College reception, out of reach of pupils, and so if parents/carers wish to donate these items, please leave these with a member of staff.
NON-UNIFORM DAY - 25TH MARCH
We will also hold a Non-Uniform Day on Friday 25th March 2022 where we will ask all pupils to donate £1. The proceeds of this collection will be donated to the DEC Disasters Emergency Committee who oversee the 15 leading charities involved in supporting those affected by the crisis.
PRAYER FOR THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE
O God, merciful and strong, who crush wars and cast down the proud, look with mercy upon the Ukrainian people. Protect them from aggression. Grant them peace and steadfast trust in your love. Give them courage to defend what is good, right, and holy; and provide for all their needs. Through the powerful intercession of the Mother of God, Protectress of Ukraine, and St Michael, the Archangel, Patron of Kyiv, banish violence swiftly from their midst and wipe away all tears. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
Mrs O'Brien & Libby
