From Aid to the Church in Need

“We would like to thank the family of Fr Paul Sanders for arranging that donations in his memory given at the funeral should be sent to Aid to the Church in Need for our work. We are most grateful to receive the sum of £260. We have arranged Mass for the repose of his soul and his name will be inscribed in our ‘In Memorium’ book. Masses are offered by priests in countries where the Church is suffering or persecuted and the stipends help the priests with their subsistence. May his soul rest in peace.
