Sharing the Christmas Meal 2004
Preparations for the special Christmas luncheon were buoyed by the news that the Charitable Works Fund has had a welcome change of heart – its $200 a week contribution to the Sharing the Meal initiative is to be re-instated. Fr Gerry’s announcement of the decision at the end of Mass today (19 December 2004) drew a hearty round of applause from the congregation.
Many parishes – especially from Northern Sydney – have contributed hampers for distribution to the needy who attend the Sharing the Meal. Organisers Mary McMahon and Kate Gavan and the rest of the St Vincent’s community thank you for your generous support and wish you all a happy, holy and peaceful Christmas.
