SVDP WINTER APPEAL
Winter might be late in arriving this year, but we have already experienced the chill that happens each evening, and greets us when we get up. For us it is easy; we bring out the doona, or we put on a jumper. Imagine what life is like for those who are struggling with the day to day cost of living. So far, since January this year, members of the parish St Vincent de Paul Conference have made about 140 visits to people in need. Each visit represents, on average, 3-4 people who are struggling to make ends meet in today's difficult economic climate. Our assistance has taken various forms – we purchase and distribute supermarket cards to enable people to buy groceries and petrol. We also help with bills for essential services, and with furniture and appliances to help families live more comfortably. The assistance provided by the parish conference so far this year has amounted to about $20,600. Many of those we visit also have the need for basic human contact and support, and to have someone who will listen to their story. Providing this with respect and compassion is part of our mission. We also recognise the need to pray for our clients, and for one another, as we carry out this role.

None of what we do could be achieved without the support of our fellow parishioners. We appreciate the prayers which we know many of you offer for us and for our work. Thanks, too, for your ongoing generosity both through donations to the poor boxes in our churches, and responses to our twice yearly appeals. As a first step towards making winter more
bearable for our friends in need, we invite parishioners with spare blankets in good condition to donate them to the society for distribution. These can be left at the Parish Office, given to those working at the Piety Stalls at weekend Masses, or to any SVDP member. Our Winter Appeal this year will be conducted at weekend Masses on 11/12th June. A retiring collection will be taken up, and envelopes will be available for those who don't come prepared on the day. Thanks again for your support. Remember to keep praying for our Society and for those we serve.
