All parishes have their own characters, activities, and special quirks that make them just a little bit different, a little bit special compared to everyone else. St John Bosco in Engadine, (about 35km south of Sydney) is no different! It is an incredibly active parish with a vibrant community, that sees a wide range of people come together to form the parish community. It has all the trappings of a normal parish, however one of its special quirks is that of the travelling Mary statues.
