Octogenarians Honoured

Celebrations followed a special mass to honour 22 Octogenarians in the parish.  Sadly there were to be 23 honoured guests but the Lord had other plans that day. Guests of honour were seated in chairs draped in silver fabric & were gifted with presents from Fr Raphael on behalf of the parish.  Fr Raphael’s homily reminded the Octogenarians that they are not forgotten members of the Body of Christ & reminded youth that respect for elders is paramount.  The Octogenarian’s lesson for everyone was how to live a long & healthy life.
