St Vincent de Paul

- Our Lady of Kapiti Conference

We work without judgment to:

  • alleviate poverty with care and dignity
  • help whanau/families reach self-sufficiency
  • support those in need through advocacy
  • support Young Vinnies in our schools
  • collaborate with other groups providing assistance.

Thanks to you

Thank you for your continuing support. Without your prayers, financial support and contributions of food and furniture, we could not provide free support to those where a real need is identified.

With your help the Our Lady of Kapiti Conference provides:

Food for those in need

A box of food is being delivered almost every day to those in need across Kapiti.
We thank those who leave food at the church in our collection baskets as these are important additions to food that we get from supermarkets, and show support across our parish. If you know a person or family in need of food, please contact us at: Phone 022 344 7872, or Parish @ 902 8515, or email: svdp.olok@gmail.com

Furniture and household goods

You have helped us provide furniture, whiteware and bedding for those identified as being in need. These have been given to families on the Kapiti Coast or else sent to SVdP outlets in Porirua and Wellington. We expect to have a full storage facility at the new church in 2020. In the meantime, temporary storage is available and we welcome good quality beds and bedding, furniture and whiteware. There is a continuing need for good quality woollen blankets, many being turned into cot blankets for the new born. We are also working with June Brunton and our National Office to send goods to those in need in Samoa.

We are not able to accept second hand clothing, crockery, cutlery, kitchen utensils and the like.

Other support

We also help those who need other forms of support, or are seeking assistance, by providing care in a practical manner that promotes human dignity and justice.

We continue to need your support

Through prayer, donated food and financial donations. Donations can be made to Society of St Vincent de Paul, ANZ Account 06-0730-0297571-00. Receipts that enable a tax credit will be supplied as records of donations are supplied to us.

Our Lady of Kapiti Conference currently has fifteen active volunteers and if you have an interest in sharing in our work, please contact:
