Parishioners’ 14th July Parish Pastoral Council Meeting Minutes


Overseas Parish Project

Supporting the Divine Providence Hospital, El Salvador. Coordinated by the JPIC group in collaboration with Archbishop Romero Trust. July 2022 to August 2024.

The JPIC group working closely with the Archbishop Romero Trust is launching a new overseas Parish project to support the Divine Providence Hospital in El Salvador, which provides palliative care to the community in San Salvador. The link for this project with our Parish is established through St. Oscar who lived in the hospital and our Parish has a strong devotion to St. Oscar.

The hospital receives limited to no government funding and much of the running costs for the hospital are funded through support by the Archbishop Romero Trust based in the UK.

Working with the Oscar Romero Trust over a two-year period, the first task for our Parish is to fund the procurement of an equipment sterilisation unit.

You can find out more about the project at  Overseas Parish Project Brief and Overseas Parish Project Plan.

What is happening next:

  • on 9th July 2022 and 10th July 2022, members of the Archbishop Romero Trust and JPIC team will be speaking at the weekend masses about the Project and will be available for further engagement. We request your engagement and participation in making this project a success.
  • On 17th July 2022, the second collection is in support of the Parish project. We request your generosity and support, as always.

We thank the Parish for their generosity and support for the previous project helping St. Clare’s in Ahotokurom, Ghana. Circa £13.500 was raised and this project is now closed.

For further information, please email jpic@stjamespettswood.org.
