SPC OCA Pastoral Care Program Seeking Volunteers
author: Lorrie Liston
St Patrick’s College’s Old Collegians Association operates a pastoral care program aimed at helping its Old Collegians in their time of need.
We aim to provide practical, hands-on support and assistance to our former students, affectionately known Old Boys, at a time when they may be battling serious illness, injury, a tragic event or are struggling for other genuine reasons.
We invite you to become an active part of our school community by becoming a volunteer on our Pastoral Care Program. All assistance helps no matter how large or small.
This much-needed assistance may take on many different forms, but is primarily hands-on voluntary assistance such as: mowing an Old Boy’s lawn, fixing a leaking tap, collecting groceries, giving a ride to an errand or appointment. It could also be by providing a home-cooked meal, walking the dog, or helping with a spot of painting, gardening or utilising some other professional, trades or handyman skill – just a few simple ways which may brighten the day of a struggling Old Boy.
Alternatively, you may be interested in making a donation to the Pastoral Care Program. Please rest assured that ALL donations are used directly to assist Old Collegians through the program.
To register your interest to become a volunteer in our Old Collegian Pastoral Care Program please contact Alumni and Foundation Officer, Lorrie Liston at firstname.lastname@example.org
