Blessing for the Gianna Project

On Tuesday 2nd April Catholic Care’s Gianna Project was officially opened at its new Bradford based premises and blessed by Bishop Marcus Stock.

Trustees Sue Rix, Maureen Fletcher and Vivienne Birch joined Bishop Marcus, Father Matthew Habron and Director Carol Hill for this very special occasion.

The Gianna Project was established in 2011 and since this time has supported more than 550 families with items from our baby bank and much needed emotional and practical support. Many families that access the Gianna Project are experiencing very challenging circumstances, sometimes fleeing violence and newly arrived in the UK they are in need of support and understanding.

The team, Eileen Holland, Sue Uyar and Asia Salim were delighted to welcome Bishop Marcus, Father Habron and the Trustees to the new base where they will be able to keep stock for the baby bank and see families in the counselling / office space.

The guests enjoyed meeting some of the families that have benefited from Gianna services who came along with their babies to join in the celebration.
