Then and Now

Henry Jozefowski from Cairns emailed The Majellan recently thanking us for sending our 70th anniversary book to him and his wife, Mary. He said the book brought back many memories and the many blessings from St Gerard that “helped us through our many years”. Sadly, Mary passed away aged 86 in November. “We had our 65th anniversary in May 2022, and now I will still keep up the subscriptions to the magazine as I do enjoy reading it even at this age of my 90th,” said Henry.
