The weather has now turned cold - if you could help by bringing in a can or two such as soups, casseroles, baked beans etc... it would be truly appreciated.
Each year our Parish pledges an amount of money to Mission. Part of the funds we pledge go to a Special Project. For the past 2 years & in 2016 we have supported the Gawura School. This YouTube video gives a great explanation of what the School is all about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1BLpUNt-lQ We encourage you to have a look and appreciate what our support means to the staff, students and community of Gawura School.
