Steering Committee

The Feast of Saint Arnold is produced by a Steering Committee lead by Brian Bennett and comprised of community minded individuals drawn not only from the host Chapel of Our Saviour and its principle beneficiary, Westside Cares, but also from the community at large. Meet the special people who make this happen.
