INDIGENOUS HISTORY COMMITTEE: As 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.
