Fair Day & Mardi Gras Festival Launch
2008 Victoria Park
17th February 2008

Another very enjoyable and successful day at the Fair Day was had this year. The O.P.I. Annex was a first for the Sister's and proved very popular, receiving a steady flow of visitors stopping by as they meandered the pathways among the other varied stalls.

Sister Mary Mary Quite Contrary was kept busy for much of the day disseminating information to gathered faithful regarding the activities of the Order and also the up coming events organised by the Sisters during Mardi Gras festival, such as Zoo Walk and History Walk which are keenly attended by our overseas visitors in particular and of course the Mardi Gras Parade. Members of the gathered faithful visiting the annex were also able to have a commemorative photographic image taken with a sister or sisters. A truly inspirational reminder of their visit.

Blessings and Indulgences were eagerly sort after and widely distributed during the day by those sisters manning the annex and also by sisters strolling among the gathered faithful enjoying their day in the glorious Victoria Park
