We celebrated our Harvest Service in both churches on Sunday, October 11th at our regular times (PdC 12.30 pm | PB 5.00 pm).
At these services, we gave thanks for all the blessings in our lives and remembered all who struggle to make ends meet.
There are more families in need than ever, here on Lanzarote as well as in many other countries and places.
So, Harvest Giving is one of the many ways for us as a Chaplaincy to support the less fortunate and bring light to the world.
Even though ourHarvest Service is over – if you want to support the local community, please do so. Give what you can – give with a full heart – and share with friends in Christ you might never have met.
For our residents and locals:
Please consider a donation of high quality items to support local families. We want to encourage you to think a bit outside the box – and in addition to the usual and appreciated donations such as rice, pasta and flour, parishioners are being asked to bring a few quality items that normally can’t be afforded (“treats”).
Items to consider: Non-perishable quality items, hygiene and beauty products or small presents for kids.
These items can be given to our Chaplain anytime – or simply bring your donation with you to Church. All year round.
For our remote and virtual friends:
Please consider to send a donation with a referral to “Harvest Giving”. We will then choose a family in need and ask them to make a wish – the range is endless, and so far we have paid for spectacles for school boys who could hardly do their homework and desperately needed glasses! Happy faces there! A soon-to-be Mom will need support with baby food and nappies etc. – we are organizing support here, too. We will team up with local farmers and send their produce to top up the Caritas food provisions.
And more to come.
Your donation will be used where it’s most needed, it will not be “anonymous” money, but used to make the day a little brighter for those who are really struggling.
Please use our bank accounts for your kind donation. Again, even though the reference is Harvest Giving, your donations are welcome all year round. Thank you.
A huge thank you to those who already sent a donation for our Harvest Giving – we are currently finding the perfect purpose for your donation!
