A big thank you to all the families who donated to the Christmas Appeal this year. The generosity and good will of the community was outstanding. This week the Mazenod Vinnies team worked together with the Lesmurdie conference for St Vincent De Paul to make up the hampers that will be given out to those in need in our Parish.
We made 32 bountiful hampers that I am sure will bring a lot of joy to families who are doing it tough this Christmas. Many lovely gifts were also received which will be wrapped and given to the children of these families. It was wonderful to work together with Dermott and Barbara Touhy, Des Hart and Ellita De Nardi from the conference and they were very impressed with our Young Vinnies team’s enthusiasm and compassion.The appeal also raised $2500 which will be donated to the Xmas Appeal to help the wider community. We are very grateful to all your wonderful support!
