Welcome to the St Vincent de Paul Society of St Andrew’s at Marayong.
Our conference has 8 active members and 2 auxiliary members. Our meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, commencing at 7.00pm. We always welcome visitors and new members to our meetings.
Our members staff the St Vincent de Paul shop on Railway Road at Marayong on a voluntary basis, as well as attending to the needs of the underprivileged in our parish. Our house calls usually consist of us giving out food parcels rather than food vouchers. While this might be a little more work for our members, it assists the genuinely needy in a more practical way.
We are blessed with the assistance we receive from our parish community, from the support of Fr Ron and the parish staff to the generosity of the many parishioners who continually give donate money to our poor boxes or place food in our baskets at the main door of the church every week. This generosity allows us to depend less on the regional council for assistance.
The Society has a Winter Appeal and a Christmas Appeal every year and we appreciate the extra effort and support we receive at these times to enable us to cater to the greater demands that are placed on our members.
If you would like to find out more or if you would like to help us, please contact the Parish Office.
