St Vincent de Paul

St Vincent de Paul society answers the call of Jesus and is carried out by volunteer laity who wish to increase their own faith whilst serving others.

St Vincent de Paul partly support the poor, needy and disadvantaged who live within our Parish boundaries regardless of their creed, ethnicity, health, gender or political opinions.

This mission in Australia is to deepen the Catholic faith of its members to go out into our nation to heighten awareness of Jesus Christ. We do this by sharing ourselves, who we are and what we have with the poor on a person to person basis. We seek to cooperate in sharpening a more just and compassionate community, and to share our resources with our twinned countries.

Our preferred option in this mission is to work with the poor in development by respect their dignity, sharing our hope and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny. Members are caring, empathetic and compassionate in nature and have a willingness and ability to help others.

Time commitment is accommodating and typically 3-15 hours per week. New members are welcome any time and can be involved by making contact with the noted contact person.

The general meeting location is the Mons. O’Reilly Hall every alternate Tuesday from 6.00 pm to 7.00 pm, where we come together to offer support, encouragement and to review and coordinate our activities. Meetings begin with a prayer and reflection followed by visitation planning.

Visitation days for Pastoral Care are Monday to Friday with an additional Pastoral Care directly from the Bulli Resource Centre on Wednesday mornings from 9am to 11.30am.
