Time: See below
Where: 69 Margaret Street, Toowoomba
Bishop Robert will bless SYCHAR, our diocesan House of Prayer and Spirituality, on the morning of Thursday 21 November 2019.  Because of the limitations of space, the simple ceremony will be attended by invited guests. 
There is an “open house” invitation for anyone who would like to view the facilities at SYCHAR on the afternoon of Thursday 21 November and on Friday 22 November. If you are in the house at 2.00 pm Thursday, or Friday at 10 am or 2.00 pm, you are invited to be present for an explanatory session. 
As Sr Elaine will be away for retreat the following week, SYCHAR will not open again until Tuesday 3 December. A regular program will not be established until the new year but you are welcome to visit SYCHAR throughout the coming weeks and familiarise yourself with what is available.
