Halfway mission church extension

Here are some photos of the extension hall behind St Therese Mission church in Halfway, which was started in 2009 and finished in November 2012.

Most of the work was done by parishioners, helped by some members of the Knights of Columbus. It will be officially blessed by Bishop Liam Cary on Christmas Day 2012.

Turkey Dinner 2011

The annual Turkey Dinner was held in our parish hall on Sunday       November 6th, with two servings, at 2 PM and 4 PM. It was a combined effort by the ladies of the Altar Society who did most of the cooking and preparation, the Knights of Columbus who did the carving of 14 turkeys as well as the setting up and cleaning up, and the Youth Group who did most of the serving and waitering. Thanks to all those who helped in any other way, and to those who bought tickets and sponsored our dinner. Most importantly thanks to the 14 turkeys who gave up their lives, so that we can enjoy them!

High Tea in our parish

The ladies of the Altar Society organized a High Tea on Saturday June 11, 2011 and here are a few photos of the beautifully decorated tables. The theme was Wedding dresses, and a few were displayed and showcased.


Floral Arrangements in our church

Our thanks goes to Catalina Corona, who with the assistance of Elvira Arceo, has been decorating our Cathedral for the past few years. These are some of the decorations that Catalina and Elvira worked on over the past few years, mainly Christmas, Easter and Holy Thursday. The first one shows both of them 'in action'
