Eternal God, our Shepherd and Guide  
We bless and thank you for the appointment Mgr Greg Bennet
of your servant, Greg Bennet,
as the tenth Bishop of Sale. 
May your Holy Spirit grace him
with the gifts of wisdom and strength,
gentleness and compassion,
as he prepares to take up his role as our pastor and teacher.
May he be a shepherd after your own heart, 
who will walk in your ways and, with loving care, watch over your people.
May he be a leader of vision and a teacher of your truth.
As Bishop-elect Bennet prepares to make his home among us,
may we welcome him joyfully into our Diocesan community,
now entrusted to his care and leadership.
May we, as the Body of Christ in the Diocese of Sale,
through our work and prayer
together bear witness to Christ and the building up of your kingdom.
We ask this through your Son Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen,

ST VINCENT DE PAUL - "ASSIST A STUDENT"

SVDPWhat is Assist a Student?
The Assist a Student Program gives you the opportunity to provide funding to support the education of a student in one of our partner countries for one year.

 

In many Asia Pacific countries, poverty excludes individuals from reaching their full potential by being a barrier to opportunities, including accessing education. Donors provide $70 per student (to be increased to $100 on 2 October 2020) that assists a primary, secondary or tertiary student in one of our partner countries to access education. In our partner countries, local St Vincent de Paul Society members select students from families in need to be assisted by the program.

 

The Program commenced in 1986 as the Adopt A Student Program as a pilot program in Victoria providing $70 per student sponsored in Australia’s Twinned countries. The program became national in 1995.
