Our parish has been busy fundraising this year…
Our latest drive? A Garage & Carboot Sale held last Saturday morning, 25th November. From 8am – 1pm at St Joseph’s school grounds, the sun shone as vendors were busy setting up their stalls and putting their pre-loved goods and treasures up for sale for the punters. It proved to be quite a successful day in raising important funds for the parish; well done in particular to St Augustine’s clergyman Ray Buchanan, whose plant stall proved very popular !
It was also great to have our non-Catholic community join in on the fun and set up their stalls among the flock; we are really lucky to be part of this fantastic little community called Pinjarra, no matter what religion or denomination we may be. As our blessed Fr.Gayan Thamel articulated ….yes we want to do our best at raising funds, but what it is really all about is bringing the community together. And that it did. A big thanks to St Joseph’s Primary for the loan of the school grounds and to everyone involved who made this year’s Car Boot sale happen.
We have a new date locked in for those looking forward to setting up a stall next year. We’ll see you there on Saturday, 2nd June, 2018! More information will be available on our website events calendar closer to the date.
