Altar Servers New Vestments Appeal

St John’s parish has always responded generously when funds are needed to address specific needs for the church.

Our Altar Servers Vestments have sadly come to the end of their lifespan requiring replacement, and supplemented with larger sizes to ensure the servers who are growing up can look smart carrying out their duties for Mass.

In order to address this need, we have been able to reduce the price of purchasing new vestments by obtaining a significant discount of £424 from the suppliers and making use of a small number of vestments in good condition. Taking into account the price reduction and utilising existing vestments we are seeking funding of £1,503 to purchase 11 new vestments.

We look to your generosity in making a donation for this important appeal. A leaflet and special appeal envelope have been produced providing further detail and highlighting the opportunity to make the most of your donation using "Gift Aid”. You can also give your donation directly to Canon David or the Parish Office. Cheques should be made payable to “St John the Evangelist Church” and marked on the back “Altar Servers Vestments Appeal”.
