Power up with Vinnies

Will you 'pay forward' all or some of your energy bill saving to someone who really needs it?

Backed by ABC Radio Adelaide after a suggestion on-air by Adelaide property developer Theo Maras, Vinnies SA has launched a campaign to encourage people to ‘pay forward’ the $300 discount each household will receive off their energy bill in the recently announced Federal budget measure, if they are in a position to do so.

Our Vision, Our Mission, Our Calling

Some months ago Father Mwaura asked the Parish Pastoral Council and Parish Finance Council, as representatives of Nativity parishioners, to commence the development of a Vision, a Mission and ultimately a Strategic Plan for Nativity Parish. The reason for this is to help focus PPC, PFC and our Ministries and groups on what we all agree are the KEY areas where, as a parish, we can and should make a difference.

As a result of this process the PPC/PFC developed the following

VISION for the Nativity Parish

  • We strive to be a welcoming, growing and vibrant catholic community that embraces the diversity of people and culture through our love of God. 

The MISSION of the Nativity Parish

  • Through faith we build a Eucharistic community of loving, humble and compassionate People of God by reaching out to all.   

The Priority Areas the Nativity Parish STRATEGIC PLAN needs to focus on:

  1. Developing the connection between our church and our school

  2. Engagement of young people and young adults

  3. Welcoming new people

  4. Outreach to the wider community

  5. Faith formation
