Fundraising Sausage Sizzle for The House of Welcome - Sunday 25 June 2017
The fundraiser was held to raise money in support of St. Francis Social Services' House of Welcome. It also allowed parishioners to not only meet fellow parishioners but also the men and women who help out at the House of Welcome and to learn more of their work. There was also the chance to have a tour of the newly refurbished building to see the work of the House of Welcome.

Friendship Group Visit To The Pharaoh Room - 9 May 2017
The focus of this trip by the Friendship Group was to visit the Land of the Pharaohs! Our bus first took us to Trimbrell Park at Five Dock for morning tea. The park faces on to the waters of Iron Cove where a warm cup of coffee or tea was welcome as the morning was a bit brisk! Fortunately, the weather brightened up for the rest of the day.
Next we got a sight-seeing tour of the city harbourside construction zone to fill in a bit of time before we went to our prime destination: the Egyptian Room at the Royal Arch Temple in Petersham. More than an hour was spent there while our qualified Egyptologist guide explained the meaning of the coloured vignettes around the room. The time passed quickly as we were all fascinated!
Next, we travelled across town to the Paddington RSL club for lunch. This was a very tasty two-course lunch enjoyed by all. The day was rounded out by a sightseeing tour of the coast down to Bondi Beach and then our (very heavy traffic) journey home.
