St Mary’s Bruce Rock Parish celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening and blessing of their church in July.
Salvatorians Superior for Australia Fr Karol Kulczycki SDS celebrated mass for the occasion, assisted by Parish Priest Fr Francis Kot SDS.
Parishioners were delighted to welcome back a large number of Presentation Sisters who had previously served in the parish in the former Convent School and on the Motor Mission.
Sisters from St Joseph who currently conduct a Wheatbelt-Mission were also represented at the occasion.
Former parishioners and representatives from fellow Christian churches joined in the Mass to give thanks for the blessings of the past 50 years and to pray for the Faith to grow and flourish into the future.
A celebration lunch at the Recreation Centre presented a great opportunity for sharing of stories and re kindling friendships.
An anniversary cake was cut by senior parishioner Dorothy Negri and PP Father Francis Kot.
