Winter is a distressing time for our friends on the street. It’s cold outside. It’s the season when, as I tuck myself into my warm bed, I often think what it must be like to be sleeping on the ground with only my clothes or a thin blanket to keep the cold away. Sleepless nights are common for our friends in these conditions.
I am also reminded, as the statistics highlighted in this edition show, of the importance of the sense of community that our teams of wonderful volunteers provide to our many friends. Thank you.
I am happy to report that our Branch coordinators met with our State Office Support team on Saturday, 23 April 2016.
Everyone shared their knowledge and experiences as part of the implementation of our Strategic planning activities. It was truly amazing to hear their stories of inspiration that you, our supporters and wonderful volunteers, create. We look forward to working together to implement the initiatives that were raised at our forum.
Finally, I would like to invite you to join us at our special celebratory Mass on Monday, 8 August 2016 at the Cathedral of St Stephen. I hope to see you there.
