Last Wed 06 Dec, the staff of our 3 Parish Primary Schools came together to celebrate a year of service to our Primary students. Here is what Beth, Religious Education Leader of St Clare’s Primary, had to say about it:

Hello to all,

I would once again like to extend my thanks and appreciation for everyone’s participation at Mass last night and the wonderful work of the YPs and Wayne in preparing our meal.

It really is a special thing we have in the Parish of St James, and it’s a credit to all for the vibrant culture we share.

As you all continue to work hard for other this advent, please remember to look after yourselves. 

I hope you all are able to hold up with smiling faces until the Christmas break.

Merry Christmas and God bless,
