All Parish children are invited to take a Christmas picture home, along with a pack of stickers. Please colour in and decorate your picture, cut it out and return in to the box at the front of the Church when you are finished.
We will still have a 9.30am Parish Mass on Sunday 24th December. After Mass we will be having a ‘Decorating Day’ so the Church is ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Dear Father Alo,
On behalf of all the volunteers and people living within Cana Communities, I write to express our gratitude and thanks for your exceptional support of Cana and for again allowing us to hold an appeal at your parish in September this year.
Your help allows us to continue our mission of making a difference to those living on the margins of society and we thank you for your belief in Cana’s mission.
Since the appeal this year, we have received a total of $ 1,732 in financial contributions. Please convey our heartfelt “Thank You” to your parishioners who have donated so generously to the work of our Community.
Thank you again for your generosity and we wish you and your parishioners many blessings this Christmas and peace and joy throughout the New Year.
