Parent Pastoral & Community Care

The Padua Parent Community Care Program aims to provide very practical short-term assistance to families that find themselves facing disruption due to illness, trauma or other circumstances.

Our mission is to help and support families during difficult times that can confront them when unplanned things happen. Please contact the P&F President by email at if this help could be used by you or another family in need.
