Recipes for life-changing surgery

Our speaker at the 10.30am service this Sunday, December 10th will be Rhonda Willoughby (pictured below with Bishop Pat Storey).  For two years she has been involved in the “Good for the Sole” project in the Diocese of Meath and Kildare in partnership with the Leprosy Mission.  Leprosy still exists in parts of the world and particularly in India and so far €25,000 has been raised to buy sandals, made out of recycled tyres. Sandals help protect the feet of those who suffer from leprosy. 
They are now moving into the second phase of the project – to raise money for foot surgery that costs €50 per patient, which includes medical care, hospital stay and aftercare.  For a leprosy sufferer this surgery means that they can work again and earn a living. 
 Rhonda, who lives in Naas with her husband Tim (son of a former Rector of St Paul’s, Noel Willoughby) and daughter Christina, has produced a cook book to raise funds. She will have copies available to buy this Sunday, they cost €10 and would make a nice Christmas present. Why not extend your recipe repertoire and change someone’s life!
 Meanwhile, Sunday Club meets in the Parish Centre during this service.
