The Holy Fathers has a Philptohos committee – meaning “lovers of the poor”. Events are arranged and money and material assistance are given to people who are in need. We help all people in Shropshire and throughout the World.
In recent months we have helped Ukrainian refugees settle in the region. We continue to help victims of flooding in the Shrewsbury floods in 2020 and 2021. We have supported the homeless in Shrewsbury and community members who have been badly affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
