The Reverend Dr Mark Short will be consecrated and installed as the eleventh Bishop of this Diocese on Saturday 6th April 2019 at 11am in St Saviour’s Cathedral Goulburn.
Collections at both the Induction service and the Carol service were donated to the Christmas Bowl appeal.
A total of $4373.40 was raised.
The quilt was won by Anne-Marie Bell, and the Christmas hamper was won by Callie Gertzel, a resident of St David’s Close, who asked that it be donated to needy families. We took the hamper to St John’s Care who were extremely appreciative.
Overall the raffle raised $1992.80 – a great result!
