The Ned Kenny Centre has had a little revamp. Vertical blinds (colour matched to walls) have been fitted to the kitchen and two front entrance windows; and new curtains hung across the sliding door. (We thank the parishioners who cut, sewed and fundraised for the old curtains many years ago and pray these new drapes stand up to the test of time half as well.) We also thank Greg and Fran who prepared the room for the installer (repairing broken plaster from water damage, taking down the old rods and shifting the furniture out so he had room to move.) Kim (from Earl’s Carpet Cleaning) will come in next week to clean the carpets both there and in the parish office. A couple of people have commented on how well the Sanctuary looks in the videos. For that we thank Fr Jaybee who hung the curtains (just so) and Kaye C for the flower arrangements. Di and Greg are still keeping up the gardening at both church centres. As Luther Burbank said, “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” I’ve lost count of the people who stop, (in the busyness of their lives), to breathe in the beautiful perfumes of our roses in front of the Parish Office. I think I derive as great a joy from watching them as they do in this simple pleasure. Which brings to mind a story Di told of her elderly neighbour trying out online delivery during the current isolation period. She had put a 1 against potatoes and that’s what she received. One potato. Not quite the 1kg she intended, but it has given her and her friends a good laugh. A few of the Craft Ladies chat via Zoom on Tuesday afternoons at 1.30pm for 30 minutes. They invite anyone to join them for a natter just contact Julie on 0429 976 602 and she will send you the link. With the flue season nearly upon us if you would like a (free) face mask consisting of 3 layers of cotton/polycotton ring the Parish Office or Julie. They are not guaranteed protection from droplet infection, however they are a good warning system to stop touching your face while out.
