You will feel good eating a Father Mac’s Heavenly Pudding for more than one reason. It is a delicious way of playing your part in providing funds for the parish and much needed communities and charities.
Much thanks and acknowledgement is given to the volunteers who come in to wrap and pack the puddings, make up cartons and so many other jobs. The volunteers are the special ingredients into a Father Mac’s Heavenly Pudding. Without their assistance the cooked puddings would get no further than the oven.

Each year, during the month of July, the parish responds to a special request to support a project in Zimbabwe through the sale of Fr Mac’s Heavenly Puddings with all proceeds donated to this appeal. That means the full amount paid for each pudding goes to help the needy children and young people. this gesture from our parish shows our commitment to the poor, something Pope Francis is continually calling us to.
Father Mark Hackett SJ has asked us this year to help with Zambuko House. The word “zambuko” means “bridge’ and the House was established for the rehabilitation of street children in Harare. It was started by Brother Canisius SJ in 1994 as a refuge and rehabilitation centre for orphaned and vulnerable young teens.
Sr. Anne says “the residents now receive a home-like environment that shields them from the dangers of street life, spiritual and moral development, 24 hours social support, training, and educational programmes as well as sporting and recreation programmes.”
Our focus this year is to assist Zambuko House to replace the Chicken Flock.
