The theme for this years St Michael’s Week is ‘Nurture’.

St Michael’s has a tradition of helping people grow and develop their life and their faith. Our faith should always be growing as should our lives, but unfortunately many young people have that growth stinted through a range of tragedies that negatively affect their lives.

With this in mind, St Michael’s will be honouring the work of the Mirabel Foundation which nurtures children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to parental illicit drug use.

 

St Michael’s Medallion Recipient

It is a privilege to welcome Jane Rowe to St Michael’s. Jane personifies “to give and not to count the cost”. Through Mirabel she has supported thousands of seriously disadvantaged children by giving them hope and a future.

Mirabel is an Australian Children’s Charity that was established in Victoria in 1998 and extended into New South Wales in 2003. Mirabel is the vision of Jane Rowe, who identified a vulnerable group of children and took action to make a positive difference in their lives. In her work as a drug and alcohol counsellor, Jane witnessed the devastating effects that drug use has on the children of drug users and the cycle of abuse that repeats itself through generations if action is not taken.

Jane believed that it was possible to bring about positive change to the lives of these children. Through her insight, passion and experience, she has raised awareness of this vulnerable group of children and in December 1998, with the support of countless individuals, Mirabel was launched with a two-night benefit concert in Melbourne. Since this time, Mirabel has provided vital assistance and support to thousands of children living throughout Victoria and New South Wales.
