Family Day Castle Hill NSW – Sunday 5th November

Our Sydney Family Day on the 5th of November was a great day despite the wet weather!

Dominos Pizza delivery for lunch (no preparation!) and a healthy sprinkling of new families.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd was held in our Castle Hill atrium for 2-6-year-olds, a talk for the 7-11 year olds was given by Bernadette Meney (‘The Holy Souls’) and ‘Pro-life Apologetics/Activism’ was fed to the 12-18-year-olds by Mary Lennon & Isaac Spencer.

Dr Gerard O’Shea received enthusiastic accolades from many parents for his hour-long talk on “The Moral Formation of Your Child”.

Approximately 25 families attended. A terrific climax to Sydney NACF events for 2017.
