It was very good to see many children at the event. There were also a good number of people who have recently immigrated from Ukraine. Those in attendance, and this included a good number of neighbours from the area, stayed for the BBQ which was organized by the Cathedral Parish Council.

It was a very enjoyable evening which on one hand was very community oriented and also reminded us that the festive season of the Birth of Christ is upon us.
