St Vincent de Paul
In our parish, we have two St Vincent de Paul conferences, based at New Lambton and Waratah/Lambton.
Our conferences provide crisis support services to the poor and need of our area, including emergency food futures, clothing, furniture, emergency bill assistance, budget counselling and pastoral support.
Contact is via the St Vincent de Paul call centre, which is open 9am-12.30pm, Monday to Friday, (02) 4961 6885.
Caring Group is a volunteer group which aims to reduce social isolation within our parish and to provide a sense of community.
They visit the sick and housebound and are available to transport people for doctor’s appointments etc.
Family Groups operate within our parish and as such are responsible for promoting the life of the parish community.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, from grandparents to babies. There is room for non-church attending spouses, one-parent families and single people, elderly or young.
