Anzac Day was meaningfully celebrated at 9 am Mass. Fr Thai explained the importance of sharing the Anzac spirit and message with young people.
The ode was respectfully and expressively recited by Lee Bonser and the Australian National Anthem sung at the end of the mass. John De Vrie having just returned from the Dawn service shared the relevance of the various artefacts on display and his own medals. There were colourful displays display at the front of the church and outside, artistically set up by Graham Hodge, assisted by his wife Michel. Many thanks to all involved on behalf of the parish.
