After the liturgy celebrated by Fr Anthony Nguyen and Rev Scott Dulley we moved to the church hall at St Mark’s. Some 60 people joined in the burning of the palms ceremony held outside the hall with Larry Keegan and John Presland in charge! At the appropriate time the match was put to the palms. Rev Scott and Fr Anthony led the short service before everyone moved inside to enjoy the delicious food prepared by the ladies of the district. Fr Anthony prayed grace. A good time was had by all and $329.00 was raised for the missions.
