St Michael's Care Group was established to help create a sense of community, and to foster an attitude of mutual concern.
We welcome all new parishioners and invite you to 'our coffee table' after the 9 0'clock mass on the second Sunday of the month and hold a bi-annual party to welcome all new folk.
Assistance and care is given to the elderly which may be highlighted by the dedicated and remarkable work done by Matron Monica Rappaport who runs a clinic at Welverdiend taking blood pressure, injecting those who have need of insulin, or simply massaging feet to assist with circulation. Our care extends to other elderly people for whom we provide some social interactions with tea parties and an annual Christmas party.
However it is not only the elderly that we visit, but the sick, lonely or troubled or those who might be in need of some emotional support.
If transport to and from hospital or other appointments is a problem, contact Ros Dachs on ph. 689-2537.
We also offer lifts to those needing them, and one of our members runs a prayer service at the Woodside Frail Care.
To be effective in these areas of outreach we need to be informed, so please don't hesitate to let us know of a parishioner is in need or if you are motivated to join us and spread some care in our world, you would be most welcome.
