Christmas is close at hand and I would like to thank you for your support throughout this year, as you have supported us for nearly 100 years.
Recently we had the chance to give something back with the expert help of the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP), we made available a house on our property for refugees. Now we have five single men living in this house, two of whom were in detention for six years.
Even more recently we have made available a house for a young couple who are expecting their first child. We hope that they will be happy in this house, they will make it a home and they will find happiness there.
We cannot help but think of Mary and Joseph and their time in Bethlehem where there was no room in the inn.
I hope you have a blessed Christmas, I hope they have a blessed Christmas, God Bless you.
