Welcome to a NEW YEAR

To our ‘old’ friend’s grazie and to our new volunteers welcome. Thanks to Rosemary and Paula along with a group of volunteers we had a clean-up in readiness for our opening. The floors were professionally cleaned and we were in ‘tip top shape’ come the first Wednesday we opened.

Some Changes

Br Russell has moved from a staff member to one of our valued volunteers. Russell will be involved in supporting the elderly Brothers around Perth. His time here at The Shopfront will be limited to a few hours on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.
For the time being St Vincent de Paul members are not in a position to come and offer their services. Our relief/assistance office will still operate Monday to Thursday however we will only be in the position of being able to offer our food hampers and in an emergency some short term accommodation support.

Evenings

This year we will be opened on a Tuesday evening for fellowship, soup, tea & coffee.  Various school groups have taken on board one evening a month. Thank you to the staff of Mazenod College, St Norbert’s College, John XX111 and the Marist Young Adult Ministry from Newman College. In addition to these groups we have a small coterie of volunteers from last year who will also come on a rostered basis each month.

Students

Once again this year we are fortunate in having students with us as part of their tertiary studies. Regina started the year with us for a few weeks in her Pastoral Care Diploma course and we also will be hosting Roshina for 16 weeks as part of her Social Work studies at UWA.
