WORKING BEE 16th December
It seems like we only just had a working bee, however as all the leaves have blown off the trees and copious amounts of rain our grounds are needing a good clean up as we head into Christmas. The working be will be on Saturday 16 December starting at 8.30am and finishing around lunch time. If you are interested, please come along and if you have any gardening tools/wheelbarrows etc. please bring them along too. We hope to see you there!
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).
