The summer Alive in Faith newsletter is now available online and contains news of funds received and details of how it is being spent on parish projects, seminarians, retired clergy and social outreach.
The total amount pledged by 3,500 individuals across the Diocese of East Anglia stands at £6.3 million. Total income received so far is just under £4 million. Total expenditure to the end of June 2019 is some £1.1 million, which is divided across the four priority areas.
Some 30 parish projects have now been started or completed, five new priests were ordained in Norwich earlier this month, a Caritas Development Worker has been appointed, social outreach grants have been made and properties for retired clergy have been progressed.
Monsignor Philip Shryane, chair of the AIF Supervisory Committee, said: “We would like to thank you for your generosity towards the Alive in Faith campaign. This newsletter highlights where your contributions are being spent and how they are making a real difference to the life of the Diocese.”
