Friends of Sacred Heart welcomes you

The Friends of Sacred Heart was established in December 2005. It is part of what the parish does to engage with the wider community. On its behalf a group of parishioners meets regularly to organise fundraising and the allocation of funding to overseas projects.

Friends of Sacred Heart targets projects that are not supported by major charities. They are usually suggested by members of the parish because of a personal link, recommendation or knowledge of what they do.


Friends of Sacred Heart uses a formal application form to consider potential projects. Projects provide written reports and photos to show how the funding benefits the people receiving the service or provision. There are no administration costs: 100% of the money goes to the projects.

FOSH has a stall at the Penicuik Street Fair on Saturday 26 August. If you would like to contribute home baking please leave it in the Michael Room after Friday morning mass on 25 August, or bring it to our stall on the Saturday morning about 10:00. 


Our next meeting is in the Michael Room on Wednesday 27 September at 19:30. We really need parishioners to join the group to help with fundraising and to decide which projects to support. Why not come along to see what we do? We would love to see you. You are not committing to anything by attending the meeting.
