Thanks everyone for your support of Our Soul Food night. We had an overwhelming response with over 70 guests – parishioners, friends of parishioners, school parents, representatives from other churches and congregations.
The food was delicious and the conversation was lively. Hani Abdile, a young woman who fled Somalia, shared her poetry and stories about her experiences and. Krish and team provided a Sri Lankan feast – including cooking rotis in situ..
But the real stars of the evening were Ravi and Della who with their gentle guidance provide great opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers. We were all inspired by their initiative, courage and kindness.
If good will, generosity and commitment to a cause are any measure we had a very successful night.
