St James Parish Fete:
All welcome. This is a fun filled day filled open to everyone, so bring your family and friends along to enjoy the day. There will be food, rides, laser tag, dunking machine, Vietnamese dragon dance (12pm) karate demo (1pm) live music and all the usual stalls such as white elephant, Devonshire Tea, Spinning Wheel, Pick-a-Box, Coin Toss, Show Bags, Fairy Floss, Snow Cones, and a couple of new ones – cup cakes and Sri Lankan sweets.
Appeal for Helpers:
We do not have enough helpers and are desperate for more people to volunteer and get involved. Helpers are needed to set up between 4pm-7pm Friday and 7am-10am Saturday and to pack up 4pm-7pm Saturday. We are also short of helpers on the stalls. Please leave your name in the Narthex if you can help – no special training required.
Wrist Bands: Wristbands are available after Mass for $35 (or $45 on the day itself). These wristbands provide unlimited rides, a sausage, a drink, and a donut.
Cake Kits: If you can bake a cake or slice for the Cake Stall, please take a cake kit after Mass. Cakes can be dropped off after 2:30pm on the Friday or Saturday morning.
Craft Stall: Donations of new items and hand-made items for the craft stall can be dropped off at the fete table in the Narthex or at the Paulist Centre foyer during the week.
Plants and 2nd Hand Items: Donations for the white elephant, toys and book stalls can be dropped off behind the church (strictly no mattresses, electrical items, clothing or large furniture).
Mass Times: On the day of the Fete, there will be no 9am morning Mass or any Reconciliations. The evening Mass will be at the regular time of 6pm.
