Casual Clothes Day
Today, as many families prepare to celebrate the festive season with their loved ones, please spare a thought to those people doing it tough this Christmas. Some gifts have the ability to stay with a person for life and forever change the way they see the world and how they deal with it. Hope is such a gift. At Vinnies, hope is seen in the face of despair.
This Christmas, your generous donation will help Vinnies provide much-needed help, from practical assistance of food vouchers. This year, the St. Vincent de Paul's society is providing the needy of Ballarat with gift cards to spend at Christmas. Each voucher is worth $25. In TA’s students are being asked to consider how they might make a difference by providing funds for Gift Cards. In a number of Religious Education classes Christmas cards are being prepared to accompany the vouchers.
Next Wednesday 4th December will be a casual clothes day supporting this appeal. Please encourage family members to enter fully in to the spirit of preparation for Christmas through the Advent Season. The funds will be presented to the St Vincent de Paul Society at the Assembly that follows Mass on 5th December.
