Depaul UK is part of Depaul International – parent of the worldwide family of charities that works with people who are homeless. Click on the link above to know more.

This work is inspired by the values of Saint Vincent de Paul (1581-1660), a major social reformer in 17th century France. Saint Vincent de Paul reached out to the poor and the disenfranchised, valuing each and every person.

He attracted a large group of supporters and volunteers, whom he inspired with his love for the poor, building bridges between rich people and those living in poverty. Vincent de Paul devoted his life to helping the poor, sick and needy, and was canonised in 1737. He is often referred to as “the Saint of Charity”.

DePaul UK have been commissioned to offer two of their prevention services here in Milton Keynes, Reconnect and Nightstop – so that no young person will have to experience hidden homelessness or rough sleeping. Click above to find out more.

The Collection is Going Digital!
Most of us carry very little cash around with us these days and we are used to paying for things with a credit or debit card. More recent, technology has allowed us to simply tap our, card, phone or even watch on a card reader to pay for goods up to £45. At a few of our parishes we are trialing a similar method for contributing to the weekly collection. You will find a reader, and someone to help, in the foyer as you enter and leave the church. Why not give it a go!
THANK YOU!
A huge thank you to all those who helped make the Feast day at St Augustine's such an incredible occastion!
