    Good Shepherd Refuge Casserole Program

    Can you spare some time to make a casserole or two. We supply the recipe and the pans. All you need to do is drop it off frozen to our parish.

We are looking for a co-ordinator and volunteers to facilitate the distribution of the pans and recipes and storing of the frozen casserole in our freezers in the hall.
