On Monday 23 April there was a meeting of the Parish Council. The usual pastoral, administrative, and financial reports were then presented and progress on parish governance, decorative and building projects was reviewed. At the meeting the long-serving head of our parish Ladies' Auxiliary, Anna Morhun, advised the Parish Council of her intention to retire from her position, effective immediately. In announcing her retirement she spoke warmly of all that had been accomplished in parish life, but stated that her age and increasing infirmity prevented her from continuing. Mrs Morhun, who turned 95 early in April, has been active in our parish since it was established in 1952, filling the role of Head Sister for over 50 years. In 2017 she received the prestigious Diocesan Cross in recognition of her service. Her retirement will be formally acknowledged with a moleben of thanksgiving during May 2018.
