Our recent Fete was a resounding success. We give thanks to God for watching over us last weekend as we gathered to celebrate community at our annual Fete.
We are very happy and proud to say that St James Fete 2023 was a great success. It was, truly speaking, an event generating a wonderful community spirit. Prior to the Fete, the generosity of our schools, parishioners and well-wishers was amazing, as they responded to the Fete Committee’s various appeals for donations of different things. There were also offers of help and pledges of prayers.
Many volunteers turned up on the day before the Fete to help set up. On the day of the Fete, everyone involved was in high spirits, showing much enthusiasm and exhibiting lots of energy.
The atmosphere of excitement was palpable. God favoured us with favourable weather once again which contributed greatly to the day.
In terms of fundraising the Fete and Raffle looks healthy and results will be shared as soon as all is finalised.
To Kevin Lloyd our Fete Coordinator and the Committee I would like to say a big THANK YOU for your time, meticulous planning and hard work. To the many volunteers, those who provided entertainment, our sponsors, our schools and parishioners, I say thank you! Without your help we would have been struggling. To those who joined us on the day thank you so much and I hope you had fun.
St James, you truly are a marvellous witness of missionary discipleship and demonstrate your commitment to living out of our mission as a faith-filled, welcoming and caring community.
