The total amount pledged by 3,500 individuals across the Diocese of East Anglia stands at £6.3 million. Total income received so far is just under £4 million. Total expenditure to the end of June 2019 is some £1.1 million, which is divided across the four priority areas.
Some 30 parish projects have now been started or completed, five new priests were ordained in Norwich earlier this month, a Caritas Development Worker has been appointed, social outreach grants have been made and properties for retired clergy have been progressed.
Monsignor Philip Shryane, chair of the AIF Supervisory Committee, said: “We would like to thank you for your generosity towards the Alive in Faith campaign. This newsletter highlights where your contributions are being spent and how they are making a real difference to the life of the Diocese.”
