St Canice’s is a Jesuit parish in Elizabeth Bay, just behind Kings Cross, and their outreach centre works to provide weekly health, legal and employment clinics, daily showers with access to toiletries and personal care items and brand new clothing, along with daily meals and a coffee shop to those experiencing homelessness and social exclusion.
These services are entirely funded by donations from generous parishioners, local residents, businesses, schools and the Waverley College community. They are currently seeking donations of tea bags, instant coffee and bags of sugar to help stock their coffee shop, which runs alongside their daily meal service.
The coffee shop runs seven days per week, and serves around 200 cups of tea and coffee each day to both the homeless and disadvantaged. It is their hope that the Waverley community can help ensure this coffee shop can continue to provide its guests with a place to gather, pray and chat, with a cup of coffee and a cake in hand.
Please would you kindly bring your tea, coffee & sugar bag donations over the next couple of weeks to the Church foyer. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
