How about making the effort to join in a devotional half hour of Word, Prayer and Music on Friday 3rd November at 5:30pm to pray for the success of our fundraising endeavours, for the rebuilding project of St Francis of Assisi Parish.

The devotional evening will be led by the O’Malley choir and they warmly invite fellow parishioners to join them for this.

Prayer is the most important ingredient in helping us accomplish our goal.  Support that all of us can earnestly and willingly supply.

Remember the date…. Friday 3rd November at 5:30pm
