Sincere Thanks for Your Steadfast Support

In these difficult times when more people than ever are dependent on the Capuchin Day Centre for their daily food requirements, your generosity enables us to keep going and help people in need

All Welcome – No Charge for any of our Services

Our thoughts and prayers for God’s Comfort on all who are grieving during this time of great suffering and our prayers of Thanksgiving for the “unsung heroes” the healthcare workers who risk their lives each day to help others.  We thank Cleaners who are doing such lifesaving work in keeping us safe.  We thank our own staff/volunteers and all those providing emergency catering and security services to those who are homeless.  We thank God for the thousands of people who are contributing in so many ways by keeping our supplies going and those who are performing countless acts of kindness.  We also thank those who sacrifice their normal social activities with family and friends by sticking to the Public Health guidelines. May God grant us his peace, comfort and healing as we struggle to come through this difficult time.  Stay Safe and Keep Well!
