Changing the conversation about Asylum Seekers
Posted on 8/6/2016

"Changing the Conversation about Asylum Seekers" campaign is a program of "table talks" events inside church and civil society organisations, which provide an opportunity for asylum seekers to share their personal stories and for members of the parish and school communities to explore their questions and concerns about asylum seeker policy in a safe, respectful space. An invitation is extended to attend one of these table talks on either Wednesday 22nd June from 5pm-7pm or Thursday 23rd June from 7pm-9pm. The venue will be in the parish hall. Please contact Fr. Alan on 97982501 or if you would like to attend. Please RSVP by Friday 17th June.

Vincentians in Fiji Cyclone Appeal
Posted on 24/2/2016

I have received reports this week from our men in Fiji. They are all safe and well. The real damage from Cyclone Winston has been in our Vincentian Parish of Natovi. The school buildings have been damaged, the administration block and school toilets have been damaged, the Presbytery has been damaged and the grand old Church has been damaged. Photos of the damage are on the notice boards in the foyer as well as on this website. School Buildings will be replaced with tents. Tents are being organised for our Natovi school. It is going to be a big project. Therefore we are holding an appeal in our parish this weekend Sunday 28th February 2016. Anyone wishing to donate are invited to do so by placing their offering in the envelopes provided on the seats. These can be handed in at either the first or the second collection.

Community Building Partnership
Posted on 22/12/2015

I am pleased to announce that the State Government has approved a grant under their Community Building Partnership (CBP) program for our parish to assist in birdproofing the facade of St Vincent's Church Ashfield. It is great news as this funding will enable us to preserve our church which is heritage listed. I am hoping that the work will commence early in the new year. Please see our photos where Stephen Fenn, the Chairperson of the Parish Pastoral Council, on behalf of the parish receives a presentation in regards to this funding from Jo Haylen, our local state member for Summer Hill.
