Our parish is twinned with the parish of Breyten and Wesselton.  There are several Mass centres in the area and the Parish Priest is based in Ermelo. He travels many miles to visit the various churches and say Mass and minister to his flock. We exchange news with our twin parish and send them copies of the "Brentwood News" and photos of any parish events. Most importantly we pray for our friends in South Africa and in turn they pray for us. This was particularly evident in the the past few years when they prayed regularly for Fr Paul during his illness. We have given a small amount of financial help to the young people in our twin parish. Funds were raised by table top and cake sales.  The money was used in various ways including helping the young people with transport to church events.
