2022 Rainbow Day St Vincent de Paul Fundraiser

This term the Faith In Action Team created an initiative called ‘Rainbow Day’.

This day also raised funds for the St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal. This is important to support people living in homelessness, particularly now that the weather is getting chilly.
