WALL OF REMEMBRANCE
The Wall of Remembrance was established in 1998, to provide Parishioners with a method of having a permanent memorial for their loved ones, in the church grounds. Spaces cost $70 and basic plaques are currently $75 (subject to normal cost increases). You are invited to visit the wall. It can be reached by walking along the path at the side of the church, towards St Martin’s School, and turning left at the rear of the church building. For more information contact the parish secretary on 3398 2977 or Graeme Barwick on 07 5527 0622 (evenings).
