Saturday 5 September: Spring Market. Time to have a clean out,
get some plants into pots, get knitting etc and start working out what
you are going to bake. Stalls: cakes & jams, books, plants, white
elephant, craft & Christmas stall, morning tea, BBZ and a raffle. We
are seeking people to co-ordinate each stall so if any take your fancy
see Heather or Greg Cozens. If we do not have any volunteers, we
will be tapping people on the shoulder. Contact Greg & Heather
Cozens on 6331 8958 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monthly Women's Breakfast: Due to the particularly cold mornings
at present and the difficulty with locating a new venue for our
breakfast the decision has been made not to meet for our August
meal. We will definitely meet again in September and enjoy this
relaxed time together. If any of the ladies have a particular idea as to
where we can meet please contact me on 6332 2822. The difficulty
is that the Restaurant needs to be open at 7.30am and the venues
within walking distance to the Cathedral do not open until 8.00am. All
ideas will be most appreciated. With thanks. Elizabeth Magee.
Saturday 16 May: PLEASE NOTE THE NEW TIME OF 5.00pm for the Saturday Night Vigil. This is to assist all parishioners who attend this service so that it is not too cold and dark when they leave the Cathedral. This will continue until October when, on Saturday 10 October 2015, the service will revert back to 6.00pm.
Memorial Gardens: Just a note that there has been a slight delay in obtaining the plantings for the Memorial Garden. This will be attended to as soon as possible.
After Hours Phone Number: 0499 104 899.
Welfare Pantry: A huge thanks to everyone who has donated items to the Pantry. As you will all have noticed, the weather has started to turn cooler. Items such as soups, cup noodles, tinned baked beans and spaghetti and ‘meals-in-a-can’ are very much appreciated by our homeless Bathurstians.
SECURITY: To all people and entities that use the Abbott Room or Cathedral after hours (excluding major concerts). John Tobin closes the Cathedral front doors at 4.30pm. Entry and exit after 4.30pm is through the carpark side door closest to the Abbott Room.
Bunnings BBQ: The dates for your 2015 calendar are 19 September and 7 November.
Refugee Personal Effects: Thanks to all nine of you for taking
responsibility for a parcel to Manus and Nauru Detention Centres and
also for the gifts of money. We know they are much appreciated.
There are about five persons left. Please contact Fr John Clarkson.
Refugee Support Group: 5.00pm, Fourth Thursday of
each month at Rahamim. Any caring and compassionate people who
are keen to raise issues and support Asylum Seekers and Refugees
are most welcome. The Group aims to raise awareness about
issues, assist and mentor refugees in the community, host visiting
refugees and provide financial support to other likeminded
organisations. Come along to a meeting or contact Brian Mowbray
on 0414 886 228.
