St Vincent de Paul

Last financial year the St Joseph's Oatley St Vincent de Paul Conference made around 60 home and nursing home visits and provided financial assistance to the sick, lonely and needy. The conference appreciates the support of Father John, the St Joseph’s School community, and all our benefactors in the parish. Meetings take place in the Marian Hall once each month (usually on a Tuesday morning) on a date that is published in the Upcoming Events section of the Parish Bulletin. Parishioners are always most welcome to attend.

Be part of the St Vincent de Paul Society's Good Works. Is there a desire in you to do something more? Would you like to reach out to those in need? Our local St Vincent de Paul Society conference is seeking new members to join them in their work of serving the disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community. Men and women of all ages are welcome to join us. For further information contact: Sue Vit on 0407 291 722.

Commitment to Safeguarding Children

We are committed to making our parish a safe place for our children. Child sexual abuse is a crime. The appropriate people to deal with a crime are the police. If you, or anyone you know, have been abused, please contact the police. Alternatively, you can contact the Safeguarding and Ministerial Integrity Office at (02) 9390 5810 or You may also want to speak to your Parish Priest who will be able to provide support and guidance. The Archdiocese has a legal obligation to report crimes to the police.
