The last project we ran was for the Archbishop’s Building Fund where we raised R25,000.00. Our new project had a great support with three raffles. Our current project is to raise funds for the Education of Seminarians. So far we have had 3 raffles which have received great support and we have raised a total of R3,820.00.
To launch the project, we had an Easter Raffle, which started on 4 March 2018. Tickets were sold after all Masses at R5.00 per ticket and we raised R1,100.00.
The prize for the Easter Raffle was an Easter Hamper which consisted of: a bottle of bubbly, Lindt easter bunny, and box of chocolates and nuts.
Congratulations to the winner, Yvonne Kapp.

Let’s keep up the good work! Your Change can make a Change
Please continue supporting the Angel Box project! Select a container of your own for the collecting change, as tins are no longer available. This does take time, as we don’t get much change in wallets and purses these days, but we do get some and it does add up!
Please note that we cannot use foreign coins or notes, or coins which are out of circulation and are now obsolete. Filled containers can be handed in at the church or office. An envelope can also be used for larger donations.
Thank you all for your past support and look forward to your continued enthusiastic generosity.
