Valuing and Supporting Older People (VSOP)


The Valuing and Supporting Older People (VSOP) group is an opportunity for older parishioners to get in touch with both their social and spiritual sides. The group serves as a valuable means for older parishioners to strengthen and extend their social ties in a caring, Christian environment.


VSOP’s regular gathering consists of a monthly meeting, which is a reflection session followed by morning tea. Outside of the normal monthly gatherings, VSOP also arranges luncheons for St Patrick’s Day and Christmas, which are highly enjoyable days of special performances, singing, and good food. Older people are warmly invited to attend.  


Meetings are held once a month on Mondays from 10am-12pm in the Oak Flats Catholic Church Hall, and luncheons are held around St Patrick’s Day (in mid-March) and shortly prior to Christmas from 11am-2pm. Times and locations are subject to change, and for current details, contact the Presbytery during office hours.

All Saints Prayer

God of all holiness

you gave your saints

different gifts on earth

but one reward in heaven.

May their prayers be our

constant encouragement for

each of us to walk worthily

in our vocation.

We ask this through

Christ our Lord.


All holy men and women, pray for us.
