Last Sunday our Parish celebrated the Feast of St Benedict. The main Celebrant for the Eucharist was Fr Richard Green who so kindly traveled from Moss Vale.  Fr Jarek, Fr Wojtek & Fr Eric con-celebrated. Many Parishioners, friends & families attended the Mass in The Shrine dedicated to St Benedict followed by Luncheon in the Montefano Hall. Many of those in attendance today were instrumental in the construction of the Shrine more than 40 years ago. One couple who lived in the parish for more than 50 years until 2 years and today made the trip from Queensland to attend the Parish celebration. Many memories & good times shared! Thank you to Fr Jarek & Fr Richard for initiating this celebration when they first arrived at Smithfield. Thank you to all who helped both today & behind the scenes to make this day an awesome success. Thanks you to all the Parish Communities & Parishioners who donated their time & cooked delicious cultural food which was so appetizing. Thank you to the Italian FCI for their generosity of donating the hampers for the raffle & Lucky Door Prize. Thanks you to all for donation of the Celebration cake, cup cakes, desserts, decorations, drinks, organizing and also washing up. A wonderful day enjoyed by all.
