              SOUTH WIGHT PARISH PROJECTS                   


Our project at St Patrick’s Church is going well, new toilets for disabled use and unisex and a light are being done this month. We have not been able to arrange any fund raising for obvious reasons.

We encourage individuals to donate to this project to help in this time of crisis, please contact Fr Joe or the office if you are able to help.

Many thanks to those who have donated towards our project, I would like to thank those who donated the organ to St Patrick’s and over the last year have helped with the car park, flowers and other items for the Church.

Thank you for those who help in many ways, by donation and support our communities; both individual people and organisations. Especially we thank you  ‘Wight Aid’ – THE Wight Aid Foundation.
