50th Anniversary of St Therese’s School-on-the-Highway, Edmonton 

25th August 2019
Your Invited to the 50th Anniversary of St Therese’s School-on-the-Highway, Edmonton

All parishioners, past students, teachers, community members and friends of St Therese’s School, which was on the Bruce Highway at Edmonton (but which no longer exits) are invited to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the building of that school by the parishioners and the community.

Celebration Program
Mass, 9.30 am at St Therese’s Church, 135 Robert Road, Bentley Park. After Mass visit-to-reminisce at the original site of the school - the church building itself transferred from Chillagoe 90 yrs ago: the school building constructed by the parishioners and community. After our visit, we journey to the Historic Hambledon Hotel for a dutch-treat lunch (i.e., we all pay for our own meal). Hopefully a Book of Memories will be published by that time: anyone wanting a copy please text name, address and phone number to John Lizzio. All royalties from the book will go to St Therese's School.
Anyone with memories or photos to share please contact John Lizzio on 0416 122 082

Rosies Youth Mission Rosies require help with several new initiatives which will help support our Cairns homeless
  1. Pot-to-Pot :  A family is invited to take a large pot and return it each month with a Hot Meal. The family supplies the meal only, and the Rosies Volunteers will put in into containers. The family isn’t required to serve the meals, only to supply and deliver it around 6pm on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening to Rosies HQ,  22 Aplin St., Cairns
  2.  We would also appreciate any semi retired people who could spare an hour or so a week for “Go-phering” duties.
  3. Are there any folks who would be available to make up say 5 or more Loaves of sandwiches with a variety of fillings, for Saturday and Sundays, and during the School holidays.

For more details please call Werner or Gina on mobile or email. Please refer to contact information below.
