mass intentions & Sunday readings
Sponsoring a young person to attend ‘Rooted’.
Rooted, our weekend away, is taking place from Friday 6th-Sunday 8th July, for ages 10-13 & 14-18. The cost for the weekend is £85 per person, which includes en-suite accommodation, two supervised outdoor activities, and a really exciting programme that we hope will deepen and enrich the young people's faith.
Some families cannot afford the cost of the camp, especially when they have more than one child who would like to go. We'd like to lower the cost of the weekend or even allow some young people to go for free. If you would like to offer a donation to help families with the cost it would be hugely appreciated. Please make cheques payable to "The Catholic Parish of Guildford" and send them into the parish office. To help with administration, please write "Rooted" on the back of the cheque. If you have any questions then please email email@example.com or call 01483 562 704.
If you have not registered on the Parish Database please do sign up online - with changes in Data Protection in May, we legally will not be able to contact people not in the database. Thank you
