Elderly parishioners from the Goldfields Catholic community were treated to a festive lunch and local entertainment on Saturday to celebrate the Christmas season. About 70 people attended St Mary’s Church Kalgoorlie’s annual seniors Christmas luncheon at DeBernales. A traditional roast lunch, dessert and refreshments were served up by the restaurant accompanied by entertainment from Pure Gold Bootscooters and Salt Lake Shantymen. Social committee member Mary Anne Bowler said the event showed appreciation to its long-serving members. “We try to give everyone a little gift to thank members of our parish community for their contributions over the years,” she said. Mrs Bowler said the event provided an opportunity for members of the Goldfields Catholic community to unite and reflect on the Christmas story. “We’re celebrating the birth of Christ, which is often forgotten in our Christmas celebrations nowadays,” she said.
