Each year, the staff of St Vincent’s Clinic celebrate the feast of St Vincent de Paul on September 27. Mary Aikenhead, foundress of the Sisters of Charity, chose St Vincent as the patron saint of the Sisters of Charity because of his great love for the sick, poor and vulnerable. Like Mary and the Sisters his dedication was to bring hope and healing. In honouring St Vincent we are once again challenged to think about the difference we make in the lives of those who live in poverty. To celebrate this special Feast a campus Mass was celebrated on the Feast day, September 27.
Each year staff contribute food items to be distributed to the poor and hungry by the St Vincent de Paul Society. This year, the contributions will be given to the people of Minto in Sydney’s south west.
The staff of St Vincent’s Clinic have been exceptionally generous, donating several large boxes to the campaign.
Many thanks to all of the generous staff who contributed to the campaign to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people in our community.
