St Vincent de Paul has a long and proud history in Catholic schools around Australian. For some students participating in a St Vincent de Paul activity is their first experience of servant leadership and opportunity to work in solidarity with those who have been made poor.

This year our student conference will organise our annual Winter Clothes Drive in term three, fundraise and prepare food for Louis Van, and be part of other events organise by St Vincent de Paul with the possibility of Buddy Camps and a Sleep Out later in the year.

Our ‘Vinnies’ Conference is open to any student at Austins Ferry, and meetings are advertised in the daily messages. For ‘Mini Vinnies at the Junior School, please contact Mrs Chambers.

Our elected office bearers for 2019 are:

President Luke Turner

Vice President Ronan Mosenthal

Secretary Dylan Kelliher.

These boys received their badges at the St Vincent de Paul Youth Induction Mass held at St Theresa’s Church last week.
