Hope Community Project celebrates 30th anniversary

Hope celebration

On Saturday 24 October, Bishop David McGough led a Mass at St Patrick’s Church in Wolverhampton to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hope Community Project. 

Many past and present staff, volunteers and friends and family of those involved in the project attended the Mass. Sue Allen the Project Manager was part of the choir and led a beautiful solo.  Afterwards there was food, the viewing of a specially produced video about the project and singing from local people. 

Hope began in 1985, when the nuns of the Infant Jesus Sisters moved to the Heath Town Estate and began visiting people in their homes. This has grown into the Hope Community Project where a team of staff and volunteers deliver a variety of services for young people, families, older people, asylum seekers and refugees. 

Hope has recently been successful in securing Lottery and Trust funding to ensure services continue and develop.

Congratulations to Hope on reaching this milestone./media/news/library/hope-staff-copy.jpg
