Mackay Street Chaplaincy hosts Information and Training Evening.
Those purple vests that have become a regular sight on the streets of Mackay on Friday and Saturday nights signify a safe place to land. Whether it is practical safety or even emotional safety, Mackay Street Chaplains aim to be a refuge that offers support.
Chaplains enjoy being among people and meeting those from all walks of life. Mackay Street Chaplaincy operates using the guiding principles of the parable of “The Good Samaritan”. In this story, compassion and help are given without any judgment, payment or reciprocity. This story was told by Jesus as an explanation of how to keep the sacred law, emphasizing that unconditional love is the requirement and call.
Chaplains are also from all walks of life and while most, at this point, have connections with the Christian churches of Mackay, some are not associated with a church but are compassionate community members who believe in the need to “be there” for others. All Chaplains are required to obtain a blue card and a basic first aid certificate.
The organisation are always looking for those who might like to join their team and so, on the 23rd of May at 7pm in the staff room of Kelly Legal in Sydney Street, Mackay Street Chaplaincy will be holding and information and training evening. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 0476 120 400 for more details.
