Support of Vinnies Winter Appeal


The St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal will be held on the Feast of the Sacred Heart weekend, Friday June 7th - Sunday June 9th. While the Society welcomes the donation of food, clothing and blankets, it is financial support that the Society most needs.  Read HERE for how to help.

Year of Faith


The ‘door of faith’ (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime.
