  • VINNIES XMAS APPEAL

    Posted on: 2 November, 2017

    Thank you so much for supporting the 2017 Vinnies Xmas Appeal

    Christmas is a time for Christians to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A time also to consider those who are struggling in their lives.

    Parents who cannot provide for their families, making Christmas a reminder of how difficult life can be for some.

    Everyone of us can actively show what it means to be a good Christian and good citizen through donating to our Christmas Appeal.

The Marcellin Graduate

They arrive as young boys dependent very much on their parents and their teachers; they depart as adults in the eyes of the law. Young men - citizens of the world. There is an impression that the Marcellin boy is cocooned on the eastern side of Anzac Parade. The challenge for him is that he sees beyond that into the broader world. He is a global citizen. He is called to reach out to others, to let go of any preoccupation with self. His destiny is, as
St Marcellin Champagnat foretold, to be a good Christian and good citizen.
