It was all hands on deck as thousands turned out to support Jesuit Mission at this year’s Maytime Fair at Xavier College on 4 May.
Hundreds of volunteers donated their time to the event, many of them working for months before the big day, but all would have been happy with the result.
Among the many supporting Jesuit Mission’s work on the day was former Vatican Ambassador and Xavier College Alumnus Tim Fischer, who could be found selling produce on one of the stalls.
Other special guests at the event were Myanmar missionary Fr Paul Horan SJ, and Hazaribag missionary Fr Bill Dwyer SJ. As a former Deputy Director of Jesuit Mission, Fr Bill was well aware of the amount of organising needed for the day to be such a success.
Thousands turned out for the big event, enjoying the games and rides, sampling the abundant food on offer, and picking up more than a few bargains at the stalls.
