The Anawim (Hebrew word meaning 'for the poor') was first started in 1977 by the parish priest of Clearview at the time, Fr James Sayers. Originally it was a ball held at the Latvian Hall at Wayville but when the parish acquired its own parish centre in 1980, it took on the format which is still used today -- a dinner attended by about 160 people, supported fully by donations from parishioners and surrounding businesses. This year's Anawim raised $7,600 with the grand total raised over the 35 years being more than $142,000 for Catholic Charities. The theme of this year's Anawim was 'Amigos Para Siempre' (friends forever) honouring the amazing teamwork shown by the parishioners in making the Anawim so successful, year after year. Pictured above are the 2012 Committee (from left): back, Adele Antal, Brian Callahan, Iris Daly, Lou Tuckfield; front, Judy Hoffman, Dawn Nolan, Lisa Daley, Bronwyn Hickey and Nita Badcock. 35 years of giving The Bishop of Copenhagen, Denmark, was amongst the many people who attended the centenary celebrations for St Canute's Catholic Church, Streaky Bay, on Sunday September 30. St Canute's Church was opened on September 1, 1912, when Streaky Bay was part of the vast parish of Port Lincoln. The parish priest of the time was Father Peder Jorgensen, a Dane, and he gave the church the Danish name of St Canute's. The celebrations commenced with a concelebrated Mass at 10am in St Canute's Church. The celebrants were the Bishop of Port Pirie Bishop Greg O'Kelly SJ and Bishop Czeslaw Kozon, Bishop of Copenhagen Denmark, who made a special trip to Streaky Bay and Australia for the occasion. The Bishops were assisted by Streaky Bay parish priest Father John Folkman and visiting priests Father Laurie Quinn of Burra and a former parish priest of Streaky Bay Father Chris O'Neil from Quorn. Other clergy present were Rev Steve Davis and Rev Ted Horne of the Anglican Church. The Mass included the rededication of the lectern and the altar, followed by the Blessing of the Icon of St Canute by Bishop Kozon. The Icon of St Canute (the patron Saint of Denmark) is a gift to St Canute's Church and its parishioners from Bishop Kozon. Following the Mass, Bishop O'Kelly SJ blessed the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in the church yard. A luncheon for about 180 people was held at the Streaky Bay Community Hotel. The book A History of St Canute's, compiled by Ellen Bascombe, was launched and presented to Bishop Kozon. Copies of the book are available from Ellen Bascombe on 08 8626 1295.
