Central Council News

Matt Talbot Conference

The development of a new Conference at the Matthew Talbot has been in conversation for several years.

Tony Cranney, Central Council President, has been in discussions with Leo Tucker, Executive Director, Mission and Spirituality, and Joy Bowen, of the Mission Team based at the Matthew Talbot.

Conversations have led to action, and the Matt Talbot Conference has started!!

The initial role of a Conference at the Matthew Talbot Hostel, Woolloomooloo will be a spiritual/pastoral role, which is encouraged in our Vincentian Rule in that “Promoting a life of prayer and reflection, both at the individual and community level, and sharing with their fellow members.”

The Conference is firmly based in the Talbot Hostel where space is allocated for that distinct purpose, so that the men at the Talbot are the primary recipients of care.  Joy Bowen will be responsible for the enhancement of pastoral skills and supervisory support to each individual and group.  She can also fill the space of spiritual advisor until one is nominated.  Further ministries of Conference members could include intentional friendship, practical assistance in providing household needs when men are housed, involving men in games, activities, eventually across the Woolloomooloo site, including the Ozanam Learning Centre.

If you have questions, contact Tony Cranney or Joy Bowen.

Metropolitan Reconciliation Action Committee

The St Vincent de Paul Society NSW launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan in February 2018. In progressing this work, we are committed to being guided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations on the best means to advance reconciliation.   

With the assistance of Reconciliation Australia, the RAP details the Society’s commitments and key actions under three priority areas – Respect, Relationships and Opportunities.  

A State-wide Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group has been established to oversee implementation of key actions within each of these priority areas. The Metropolitan Regional RAP Committee has been established to support local implementation of the Vinnies NSW Reconciliation Action Plan and related activities.  The Metropolitan RAP committee has representation from various areas of Vinnies, including Membership representation from Broken Bay Central Council, Greater Western Sydney Central Council and Sydney Central Council. 

Please contact Gabrielle McGill for further details.
