AS HOLY WEEK approaches ....

13 March 2008

AS HOLY WEEK approaches, please consider making a donation to the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund Lenten appeal, if you have not done so already.

  The pastoral and liturgical demands of the season remind everyone of the need for priests — to proclaim the gospel, celebrate the eucharist, and reconcile the penitent. If you have already given, please take this opportunity to encourage friends and relatives to follow your example.

  There are TAP leaflets still available: phone 020 7776 1060 or email But now it is first come, first served.

  Please use the form printed on page 16, and on the leaflets, whether or not you are eligible to Gift Aid your donation. Every penny is for priesthood. Address for donations: TAP Fund, G. J. Palmer & Sons, 16 Blyburgate, Beccles, Suffolk NR34 9TB.
