Christmas is the time for giving….not just of presents to our families and friends but also of ourselves, for giving of our time and sharing with those less fortunate than ourselves. Here are some ways you can contribute this year.
- Take a tag from the Giving Tree
Support our St Vincent de Paul Christmas Hampers by taking a tag and returning your
item to the specially marked baskets in the Church foyer.
- Delivering Christmas hampers
This is a very rewarding experience and a great way to give to people in our community who need our support this Advent season. Christmas Hampers will be available for collection after each Mass on the weekend of 16/17 December. All
hampers will be sorted by suburb for easy delivery. Please collect a hamper from the School Hall after Mass. Due to demand we will require many families to help deliver hampers.
- Donating to St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal envelopes are available in the foyer.
Parish Advent Giving – This year as a Parish we would like to support Toora Womens Inc.
Toora Women Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation supporting women with complex issues who have experienced past or present traumas such as:
domestic and sexual violence
the impact of their own or another’s drug and alcohol use and/or mental health issues
homelessness or needing support to stay out of the homelessness system
the ACT corrections system
Donations can help women who are escaping domestic violence get a new start in life.
