Current Needs in Cana Communities

Weekend Social Group

We would dearly love to start a social group for weekend activities for members of our community and we are looking for someone to organize the roster and head this initiative. These activities could be once a month and involve simple activities such as a movie, coffee, walk etc.

We have a number of people who wish to volunteer but can only do so on weekends, so there is a volunteer base available. For further information on this initiative please call Stephanie on 0414 945 097.

Many of Cana’s donations are received as result of appeals held in parishes across Sydney. If you think your parish might be willing to host an appeal where one of our members speaks about Cana please let us know at
