Christmas is a tough time for many families and individuals in our local community. Thanks to St Vincent de Paul Society these members of our community were able to share in the joy of Christmas. Through the SVDP Christmas Appeal many hampers, filled with food, Christmas treats and toys were delivered to those families and individuals in need of a hand up.
Special thanks to all the supporters of this Appeal – for the generosity of their donations and assisting with the sorting, packing and delivery of the hampers. Through the Christmas Hamper Appeal, the gift of hope for a brighter 2019 has been given to others.
Let us pray for the Vincentians at St Rita’s, who offer support and comfort during the whole year to our community’s vulnerable.
“Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”
St Vincent de Paul“
St Rita’s Parish joyfully embraces our Catechumens and Candidates at their Rites of Welcome. We are pleased and honoured to have them join our parish community.
Keep them and their sponsors in your prayers as they continue their spiritual journey with us. For our Catechumens this will be towards the three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). For our Candidates, this will be towards Full Reception into the Catholic Church – two Sacraments of Initiation, Confirmation and Eucharist. Congratulations to Jodi, Colleen, Keryn, Kylie and Toni!
