Fundraiser Raffle

We have 5 weeks remaining to sell our major fund raising raffle tickets and reach our target of $45,000.

We thank the parish and school communities for your support, however at this stage we are well below our target and we are seeking your ongoing help and support for the sale of these tickets.

Tickets will be available after each Mass from this weekend until the weekend of 2/3 March.

There are 10 tickets in each book—that’s 10 cups of coffee at your favourite café!!!

Can you please help?
