Fight Against Human Trafficking

Pope Francis has said that: “Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ. It is a crime against humanity.”  He has ensured that the Church is working hard with many organisations and other Faith groups to make us all be aware of the scale of the human trafficking problem, to try and prevent it at source, to free those trapped within it, to bring the perpetrators to justice and to make sure that this crime against humanity is stopped forever. We are learning daily that those subjected to human trafficking come from far away but also close to home.

I would like our parish to look at where we might help in the fight against human trafficking. I am arranging for a short talk to be given after masses within the next month or two so that we can learn more about human trafficking. This talk, which will be given by a representative from the Santa Marta Group (http://santamartagroup.com),

And will subsequently be followed by an open meeting on the subject

and I hope that people from other Faith groups will be able to attend.

Please do all you can to support this initiative.

Canon William Davern is the Parish Priest of St Joseph's Catholic Church

Whatever challenges they’re facing, members of the Armed Forces community can rely on SSAFA. Our network of more than 5,800 trained volunteers provides practical and emotional support for serving personnel, veterans and military families across the UK and worldwide.

SSAFA are seeking interest for volunteers for their service that supports veterans.  There is very little SSAFA support in the Epsom and Ewell area so if you are able to ask any of your church contacts to promote this that would be great.

SSAFA - The Armed Forces Charity is looking for volunteer caseworkers in the Epsom and Ewell area.  This rewarding role with UK's oldest military charity provides support to members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families who are in need.  It involves meeting clients, often in their homes, assessing their needs and obtaining appropriate assistance.

The amount of time a caseworker gives is flexible and can be tailored to other commitments.  He/she will be part of a team and receive full training with paid expenses.  The only requirements are the ability to self-drive within the Epsom and Ewell area and to use a computer.

SSAFA would be delighted to hear from anyone with some spare time who would like to help those who have served our country and sadly fallen on hard times. 

Interested please contact SSAFA Surrey.

Tel: 01483 208111, or  email: mailto:surrey.branch@SSAFA.org.uk

for an initial discussion.

Thank you for your help with this.

You are warmly invited to join us in celebrating our 50th Anniversary!

Epsom Chamber Choir are busy rehearsing a major concert to mark their 50th anniversary in style. The concert, which takes place on Saturday 29th June, comprises Gems of the English Baroque, with Handel’s splendid ‘Dixit Dominus’ taking centre stage. Also included are excerpts from Handel’s oratorio ‘Solomon’ and works from Purcell, one of which has been given an intriguing contemporary twist.

The choir and its conductor Mark Biggins will be joined by impressive young soloists and an instrumental ensemble, adding extra excitement to this celebration. Past members of the choir have also been invited to join in what promises to be an exceptionally rousing performance of ‘Zadok the Priest’.

Members of the audience will be invited to join choir members for a reception at the end of the evening.

Chairman Nic Ash comments: “What started out fifty years ago as a few enthusiastic singers getting together to have fun, has developed into one of Surrey’s leading chamber choirs. We work hard to achieve an exceptionally high level of performance across an adventurous range of music – but with no less enthusiasm or fun!”

Please see the website HERE for further information.
