As mentioned last week-end the special appeal conducted on 18 & 19 August for communities affected by the drought was generously supported by us all. Deep appreciation is expressed to everyone by our School Community and the local St Vincent de Paul conference. We are able to confirm that our St Patrick’s School children and their parents raised $1,734 and the church appeal raised $6,247.55. This made a total of $7,981.55. This money will provide immediate assistance towards household bills, the provision of water, feed and support to local communities. This was a wonderful charitable outreach by our School and parish working together for a marvellous result. Thanks to everyone.
