Bottles for Binil. One of our parishioners, Binil Chacko, recently entered our Ezechiel House Novitiate in Sydney to begin his studies for the priesthood. The seminary tuition fee is $7,000/yr. In order to assist Binil with his fundraising we will be collecting empty bottles and cans for recycling. A container will be available outside the tearoom for you to leave your bottles/cans in and we will take them to the recycling depot and collect the proceeds for his tuition expenses. Thank you for your generosity.
