Expressions of interest are invited from Parishioners who are set up for caravan touring, to participate in an Escorted Monsignor John Hawes Trail exploration. This trip will visit most of the magnificent Architect/Priest’s churches within the mid-west of WA, including the Geraldton Cathedral and tiny outposts like Yalgoo, to see the legacy that this man left to the history of WA and to the tradition of Catholicism in our state in the period between the two world wars. The Escorted Tour is a fund-raising activity for Caritas Australia, emanating from the Diocesan Office in Bunbury. As such, a participation fee in the form of a donation to Caritas, of $500.00 per vehicle will apply. In addition, participants will be responsible for their fuel and accommodation costs at Caravan Parks which are pre- booked by the organizers of the trip. There will also be a farewell dinner at the end of the trip, at a grand old country pub, which will be payable by each participant. An interesting, good-fun journey, in good company, and led by a knowledgeable trip guide, its planned to commence on Sunday August 22nd, and have a duration of 12 to 14 days. Interested people can respond by email to or by phoning 0428 954 224.
