Notices: Sunday 16th January — 2nd Sunday After Epiphany


Fr Jeff and Michelle are on hol­i­days until Tues­day 18th Janu­ary 2022.

War­dens’ Din­ner – from 7pm on Sat­urday 12th Feb­ru­ary 2022

The War­dens’ Din­ner will take place out­doors in the car­park (which will be closed to cars).  The theme is “Under the Stars”.  Tick­ets are $20pp or $40 for a fam­ily (kids are free).  An “all you can eat” pizza din­ner will be provided, with wood fired piz­zas of diverse descrip­tions baked to order.  Soft drinks will also be provided.  While some wine and beer is expec­ted to be avail­able, BYO is also encour­aged.  Enter­tain­ment will be announced in due course.  This will be a fant­ast­ic oppor­tun­ity to have some fun togeth­er and let our hair down like at War­dens Din­ners past, and if the last two years have taught us any­thing it is don’t pass up such a chance to get togeth­er and have a good time.

See Fabi­an LoS­chiavo ASAP for tickets!
