25 years of belonging

On Sunday 15 October Johnsonville Uniting Church celebrated 25 years of belonging to the Passionist family Group movement.
For the occasion the church was joined by Paul Traynor the National Convenor of the Passionist Movement and Kerry and John Kleinsman from St Francis of Assisi Parish who have been involved with the church since the beginning.
Following the service the people attending viewed a most memorable slide show put together by Graham Cochrane covering 25 years of activities.
The goals of the Passionist Family group movement (a family for all) are kept alive in the Parish as people support each other through the good times and the bad.
Stitches among the Flowers

We have had some very generous donations of goods and services.
