Mission beyond the Parish
The parish keenly supports the wider mission of the Church. 6% of our budget is allocated for various missions beyond the parish. On top of this individual parishioners give to these and other missions. Our aim is to continue increasing our budget allocation to 10% over the next few years. At the end of each Church financial year, the funds are apportioned across the various mission support groups.
Currently, the parish supports the following missions:
Hi, my name is Cate Struik. I joined the WPSHS team in term 4 last year and am truly blessed to be part of this amazing school.
My background is in training (Dept of Health NSW) and youthwork (Streetwork in Sydney), although I’m a born and bred Queenslander. I have a degree in Psychology and a heart for young people trying to make their way in the world.
