          NEW HYMNBOOKS – As a matter of urgency, because of the current state of the hymnbooks in the Cathedral, with pages missing and the books being in a bad state of repair we will need             to replace the current batch with 300 new hymnbooks.  Since the hymnbooks are only printed in England the cost of a hymnal is about R140 each; which means we have to raise R42 000.              Thus far we have raised R19 760
