WALK FOR WATER: More than 30 Whyalla residents, including students from Samaritan College, took part in Walk for Water organised by the local Millennium Development Goals Committee as part of the Caritas Be More Weekend. Part of Samaritan College ethos is to consider the poor and by walking and carrying buckets of water, they reminded people of how more than 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water. Father Jim Monaghan pictured with Arthur Reid, reminded people to talk about water needs to others, and lobby their local political members to do more to bring about the Millennium Development Goals. CHARITY DINNER: More than $7000 was raised for Catholic Charities at the annual ANAWIM dinner held at Good Shepherd Parish Hall, Clearview, last month. Anawim is a Hebrew term meaning poor, humble or afflicted. Pictured from left to right are: Iris Daly, Judy Hoffman, Lou Tuckfield, Freada Stevens and Kath Smith. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY: Cutting the cake at this year's Anniversaries Mass, celebrated by Archbishop Philip Wilson in St Francis Xavier's Cathedral on September 12, were Carmel and Maurice Cappo (50th wedding anniversary) and Emeritus Archbishop Leonard Faulkner (60th anniversary as a priest). More than 200 people attended the Mass and afternoon tea in the St Aloysius College gymnasium. Photo: Ben Macmahon DID YOU KNOW?: Have you ever taken notice during Mass in Adelaide's St Francis Xavier's Cathedral that there are carved stone ornaments missing at the base of some stone pillars along the knave? Or why the windows either side of the knave are not richly decorated in stained glass? Well, Friends of the Cathedral, have the answers. The group of volunteers recently hosted a tour of the Cathedral on Wakefield St for diocesan staff. Many have since discovered it was filled with unknown facts, artworks and sculptures. Anyone interested in a tour can contact the Friends of the Cathedral on 8232 8688.
