George and Fumi's Wedding

Everyone around Our Lady of Mount Carmel knows George because of his big smile and wiliness to help. Often one can see him around on Saturday mornings assisting with the church cleaning, sweeping and watering. He came as a refugee from South Sudan and became part of the parish family of families about ten years ago. He has overcome many difficulties. But by studying hard he can read and write and has become an Australian citizen. He met Fulmilola (from Nigeria) and they fell in love. So on Sunday 17th September, they were married here where George has always said among his family. It was a simple, gentle and dignified ceremony. Afterwards, there was a small reception in our gathering place to which all were invited.

The ladies of Salome's Kitchen catered, decorated and made a spectacular cake which George and Fumie cut amidst much toasting and laughter. Fumie found time to cook a couple of delicious dishes which added to the array of food that catered for every taste. The occasion was matched by the weather. All said that it was a wonderful occasion and will remain a special memory in the life of our family of families.

May Fumie and George continue to grace us with their love in their life together.
