    My mother attends your church. She cannot always get there. I am looking to find some transport for her. She lives in Chineham. She really likes Fathe Raul and your church of the Sacred Heart. She lives with my sister since our Dad died last year. My sister does have a busy life and can’t always take Mum. Do you know someone who can help get to church? She is happy to donate to the church or help with petrol. If you cannot , There is. Group of volunteers in the area who might be able to take her but they only volunteer Monday to Friday but I noticed you have weekday masses in the convent.
    It would be great if Mum could get to church twice a month .
    Thank you.
