The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP or SVdP or SSVP) is an international voluntary organization in the Catholic Church, founded in 1844 for the sanctification of its members by personal service of the poor. Innumerable Catholic parishes have established “conferences”, most of which affiliate with a diocesan council.
The Care Group have taken as their mission to care for the elderly and any other parishioners who are in need. This will be by offering our time to assist with shopping, lifts to doctors, provision of meals, home visits after hospitalisation or illness, or any others who just need to have someone to talk to. We also assist with the church fund raising and catering committees.
We also would like to initiate faith sharing groups at church or at private homes in due course.
Contact can be made with Pam Jurgens or through the Parish Office.
The Napier Centre 4 Healing (NC4H) offers a holistic, primary care treatment programme that returns residents to society psychologically stable, equipped with skills to lead productive livelihoods and reintegrates them with either family and/or a healing and supportive community.
We embrace the “pay it forward” concept where beneficiaries repay the kindness received to others instead of to the NC4H. They contribute to society by passing on the benefits received from the Napier Centre.
