Come along and cherish the Centre for a few hours on Saturday. Come for the whole time or just a few minutes.

  • Attend Centre Cherishing days (monthly)
  • Help distribute publicity
  • Offer your skills and artistry
  • Make prayers and dedications

Please contact Scott, our Admin Director if you would like to volunteer or just come along for Centre Cherishing. Check the calendar for Centre Cherishing times.
