X FILM SHOW AT ST JOSEPH’S – Deacon Gehad Homsey is presenting a film followed by discussion on “MIRACLES” on Monday December 4th at 7.30pm at St Joseph’s parish hall in Narrabeen Road, Cheriton.

X THE SUNSHINE TEAM (Stella Maris’s helpful team, formed by the children on their own initiative, we might add!) are doing their ‘Backwards Advent Calendar’ again this year. A ‘Backwards Advent Calendar’ is about putting something useful and helpful INTO a box each day in December, rather than taking OUT something chubbifying and not desperately helpful like chocolate. Everything that we put in the boxes this year will go to the Winter Homeless Shelter. Last year – amazingly! – we filled the school bus with what our families here in school donated. This year we’d love you to help again in any way you can - if you have any items that you think would help the homeless (hats, scarves, socks, sleeping bags, coats etc) then please drop them off to our school – Stella Maris! We hope that this year our ‘Backwards Advent Calendar’ will be even more successful, and we’d really love to have the parish’s help in spreading sunshine to those less fortunate. With love from the Sunshine Team and Mrs Jukes.
