Care & Support Services

St. Vincent de Paul Society

The St Vincent de Paul Society is a lay Catholic organisation that aspires to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and by working to shape a more just and compassionate society. 

The Society wants to be recognised as a caring Catholic charity offering "a hand up" to people in need. We do this by respecting their dignity, sharing our hope, and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny.

For many years, the society has had an active group of members and volunteers in the parish helping families in need with food hampers, items of furniture and other goods, helping with transport and other requests, as appropriate.

Meetings are held every Tuesday night at  7pm in the Parish centre.

Monday to Friday every week two members are on call each day to respond to calls received from the Society's head office to assist families who need urgent delivery of food or help with finance problems etc. in the Perth region. This area extends well beyond the parish.
 
A food pantry is located in the Parish Centre and once a month the parishioners are asked to donate items to maintain stocks in the pantry. On occasion, food hampers are supplemented by issuing vouchers purchased by the Society from Coles Supermarkets that can in turn be redeemed for food and special items e.g., for babies/children.

St Vincent de Paul have a clothing store located at 334 Cambridge Street, Wembley.

 Enquires regarding St Vincent de Paul in the parish should be directed to Ivan Colgan on telephone 9387 1475
