Getting the less fortunate back on their feet again



The project is aimed at supporting unemployed Tilbury people of all ages to be able to get a worthwhile job.


There is now an office base in Tilbury at Centenary House (the ground floor of the new flats at Civic Square) and the organisers are keen to spread the word around Tilbury to increase the awareness of the support available to Tilbury residents aged 16 and above.

Appeal for Father David SSenkaayi's  Project in Uganda

About three years ago we had a Parish Project collecting funds for St. Anthony’s Hospital, Maternity Unit, Uganda and an amazing amount was raised towards the project of purchasing new delivery beds and decorating the ward. Fr. David has now asked if it is possible to raise some funds for the actual hospital which is desperately in need of renovation.  He understands that times are hard but any small amount is gratefully received.

Comment from Father Anthony

Hi there good people of Stanford-le-Hope and Tilbury Catholic parishes.
This is a reality for both our parishes too. I am certain that many other parishes are in similar situations.
I know that times are tough for many families and understand also that finances can be very tight for many people. All I want to say is, please continue to contribute as generously as you can afford even if you are still not ready to come back for mass in the parishes.
You can call the parish office to find out how you can give your weekly/monthly offerings.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your gifts to our parishes.
I rest my case as your grateful parish priest.
