Parish Climate Action Group

Cindy Wooden (CNN) quotes Pope Francis (March 30, 2021):


“…The deteriorating climate is very often the result of poor choices and destructive activity, of selfishness and neglect, that set humankind at odds with creation, our common home.”

“…It (climate change) is uneven in its impact: …the greatest pain is felt by those who have contributed the least to it. …The huge and increasing numbers (of people) displaced by climate crises are fast becoming a great emergency.”


Let’s make better choices, less selfish choices that protect creation so the poor can live in a more secure and just world. If you can’t make changes for those who are poor or refugees today, think of your own grandchildren and Australians in flood and fire-prone areas as they soon may be numbered among the poor and the displaced.

St. Vincent de Paul Society


The local Vinnies Conference is very appreciative of the generosity shown by our Parishioners and School Community at the time of the Christmas Appeal. The appeal enabled the conference to provide hampers, food parcels and gift cards to many families. Thank you also to those people who assisted with the deliveries.


Cash donations from Parish  $1,620


Food donations equivalent to $4,800 plus a numerous number of wrapped gifts from St Bernadette’s School parents.

We also thank those who continue to support us through essential grocery donations left in our collection boxes at the Dixon’s, the Presbytery and our two churches.
