THE GRAAN WEEKLY BULLETIN

Christmas Day 2017

Happy Christmas: On behalf of the Community here, at The Graan I wish each one of you a very happy and blessed Christmas. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your very warm welcome and support since my arrival here at the beginning of September. The community here are a wonderful bunch to work with, and with the community I would include our staff who look after the day to day running of the place. However, The Graan would not be able to continue without your support and prayers and for this assistance we are so grateful. Be assured of a constant remembrance in our prayers and Masses. Fr Charles C.P
