Local members of Saint Vincent de Paul have been working with the fire affected families in the Tonimbuk area, offering support and assistance. 215 families have been affected with 29 having lost their homes. StVdeP would like to be able to purchase vouchers that we can personally hand out to these people. We are asking for donations to be able to do this and you can be sure, that every dollar will be going to these families.
A member of St Patrick’s conference will speak at the masses next weekend. A leaving collection will be taken up after each mass. Alternatively, if you would like a receipt, you may put your donation in the SVdP box in the foyer of the church at any time. We anticipate we will be assisting in the area for a number of months. Chris Russo [president].
