LOCAL Catholic priest Father Andrew Hayes has a new and colourful stole to wear for Mass thanks to 70 Lowe Street resident Nina.
Nina spent many hours fashioning the stole, which is reminiscent of Joseph’s multi coloured coat.
Father Andrew was moved by the gift and has proudly worn the stole during Mass.
“Different churches take our turn for prayers in the various aged care facilities – and when it’s our turn (at 70 Lowe Street) Nina sits there knitting away during the prayers,” Father Andrew said.
“She never stops and it turns out she was knitting a stole for me to wear during the prayers,” he said.
