At St Patrick’s we seek opportunities for our community to actively express our deep commitment to Gospel values such as human dignity, compassion, responsibility and service to others.
Following are a few examples where the words of our Visioning Mission have been put into action. We believe it is through actions such as these that we truly live as disciples of Jesus.
Year of Mercy
St Vincent de Paul Society Christmas Appeal
This year St Patrick’s school community aids the wonderful work performed by the St Vincent de Paul Society by donating Christmas gifts for needy families. The school is inundated with gifts which are then packed into hampers and delivered to those in need.
Fundraising for Candela Peru
Each year a fundraiser is held for the women in the shanty-town of Candela, Peru, through the sales of their Peruvian handicrafts. The Sisters of Mercy in Peru have been able to provide a nutrition programme for the pre-school children in Candela and a medical centre has been built to provide much needed assistance for the families of the town.
