The St Madeleine’s Dinner Dances have been wonderful occasions to get parishioners and friends together to celebrate the community and to raise funds on the side. Through the years, these dances have been fun-filled and uplifting.
The Kenthurst Country Fair
In the early days of the parish, the concept of a “school fair” was suggested as a means of raising funds for the development of the facilities and the community. The committee at the time suggested to reach out to a community in need at the same time growing our church and schools. It was decided that funds raised would be divided between the parish, the schools and Emmaus.
The cogs on the wheels began to turn and the first “Kenthurst Country Fair” was held on 7th May 1989!
Through the years, the Kenthurst Country Fair continued to grow, with volunteers running stalls. All profits went to the parish, schools, and designated beneficiary. One phenomenal year, 30,000 people attended! It is the main community event of the parish and is highly-awaited every first Sunday of May.
