PACT NEWS – February update
Palm Sunday 28th March – watch this space for how we will commemorate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. We’ve previously had a procession into the town with the band, donkeys, singers etc but that’s unlikely this year. All the same, please join with us in reading about it in Luke’s gospel as you come into Holy Week.
37 As soon as he got to the bottom of the Mount of Olives, the crowds of his followers shouted with a loud outburst of ecstatic joy over all the mighty wonders of power they had witnessed. 38 They shouted over and over, “Highest praises to God for the one who comes as King in the name of the Lord! Heaven’s peace and glory from the highest realm now comes to us!” Luke 19:37-38
Foodbank collection points – there is always a collection box in the Petworth Co-Op and the village stores in Fittleworth and Graffham for larder goods like long life milk/juice, tinned foods, cereals, pasta/mixes and other dry foods. They also always need personal hygiene items like feminine sanitary products, shaving gel, soap, etc. Geoff & Gill Pye have done great work with the team to collect/pack/deliver donations around the Petworth area – in 2021 they hope to pack more ‘bespoke’ food boxes in addition to the vegetarian and Halal boxes currently available. Thank you for all your donations! https://chichesterdistrict.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
