SVdP - in the interests of our responsibilities concerning the stewardship of our planet, we at SVdP are phasing out the use of plastic bags. This has created a dilema as to how we can still provide non-perishable food to those in need who call on our assistance. We are your help by asking you to provide us with re-useable shopping bags in good, clean condition. There are white washing baskets at the back of Nowra, Bomaderry and Berry churches for depositing your unwanted bags. Kind thanks for your continuing assistance. 

Holy Spirit Vincentia Conference of SVDP are holding their Winter Collection on the weekend of 2nd/3rd June after both Masses.
