INDIGENOUS HISTORY COMMITTEEAs you will recall there was a motion passed at the Par­ish AGM on 5th March that a com­mit­tee be formed of inter­ested parish­ion­ers to “identi­fy and recog­nise the indi­gen­ous his­tory of this area.”  Parish­ion­ers inter­ested in join­ing this com­mit­tee should give their names to Fr Jeff.  Please don’t feel daun­ted if you have a lack of know­ledge in this area.  It is a jour­ney of learn­ing that we will be going on togeth­er.  This par­ish is full of people with a mul­ti­tude and a vari­ety of tal­ents which can be used in this committee.
