We had visitors from Broken Bay and Parramatta Dioceses and also from the Archdioceses of Sydney. many travelled down by train. In fact two ladies from Broken Bay caught a train at 5.22am to get to Wollongong, arriving at 9.40am.
Margaret McMahon and Joan Hughes were awarded Life Membership of Catholic Women’s League New South wales for years of dedicated service to CWL at branch, diocese and state level and for service to their parish, diocese and community. It was a great surprise to both of them as they were each aware of the other being given this honour but not themself.
Bishop Peter Ingham joined us for lunch at the Novotel where 90 guests enjoyed renewing and making new friendships.
