Vinnies Winter Appeal – All Masses This Weekend

Appeal Envelopes in Pews

Dear Parishioners,

  • The Avalon and Mona Vale St Vincent De Paul conferences are again seeking your generosity in supporting this year’s Winter Appeal
  • Our basic commitment is, as always, visiting the poor and disadvantaged in their homes in our parish, and rendering appropriate assistance and care
  • We are also called upon to support special works of the Society including support for the homeless (Matthew Talbot Hostel), refugees and our “Youth Reach” centre at Brookvale
  • Our conferences also assist other conferences in our diocese of Broken Bay who are overrun with families experiencing extreme difficulties including family separation, unemployment, children at risk and domestic violence
  • Our conferences are also “twinned” with conferences in India and Indonesia in districts where poverty and homelessness is extreme and we are committed to a small annual contribution, on your behalf to help ease their burden.
  • Your tax deductible donation in the envelope provided, may be placed in the poor box at any time or left in the piety stall or in the plate next week or after – tax receipts will be issued if requested
  • Thank you for your generosity
