During the coming winter months the Archdiocese of Liverpool is opening its parish centres to provide somewhere comfortable and friendly for people to be warm and cosy as the weather gets colder and the cost of living crisis begins to bite.

Each of the centres will be open on different days of the week from 1.00 pm to 3.30 pm for people to drop in and enjoy free tea, coffee and biscuits along with access to TV and wi-fi and most important of all some friendly company.

Director of Finance for the archdiocese, Jill Boggan, has been instrumental in setting up the scheme and says, ‘warm and cosy truly reflects what our parish centres are about and it is about giving people a warm welcome to help them through these difficult times. Many of our centres host activities during the day and during these times we have set aside an extra room to welcome people. In many areas we have liaised with other community groups to try and ensure that people have somewhere to go everyday during the winter months’.
