WOULD YOU LIKE A KARORI ANGLICAN CAP?
We are thinking of getting some caps printed and want to know how many of you might be interested in purchasing them before we place an order. We thought they would be great to wear when we are out in the community working on mission projects (like with Karori Kaitiaki – cleaning up the environment) and we will also be super sun smart! The cap will be a dark navy blue with our Karori Anglican logo on the front. The cost will be $20 per cap. Could you please let Heidi know ASAP if you are interested in purchasing one (or more) – we need a minimum of 30 to place an order.
ST MARY’S CHURCH PEWS
Pews are still available to purchase. Request a pricing schedule via email to email@example.com
