Marian House is a special ministry to homeless young men. Abused and abandoned youths who haunt the streets, scavenge the dumps, perpetuate petty crimes and sleep on unsanitary city pavements and park benches, come to Marian House to find a home, a family, medical and counselling care, educational and vocational opportunity. Many have moved out of a life of hopelessness and desperation to discover a sense of belonging, even to productive employment and academic success. The miracle of God’s transforming love permeates Marion House and its caregivers.
Our Lady Of The Wayside Halfway House For Children
This home for women and children in crisis was started in 1988 as more and more abused and desperate mothers turned up at the Centre begging for help. At first a house had to be rented and eventually the necessary funds were provided to purchase a more permanent home. This now accommodates newborn infants to older children who have been abandoned or abused and brought in by social workers or community police. Women in crisis are sheltered for an interim period, until they can sort out their lives. This ministry involves round-the-clock supervision and a caring permanent staff as well as many ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ who help in various aspects of this labour of love.
Established in 1986, this ministry tackles the serve problem of drug addiction. The Rehab Centre host a 3 month programme that is professionally structured and administered. Many factors hinder recovery, but there are many succcess stories.

When we opened our Hospice in 1983, a word from Scripture was given to us that this place would be a gate of heaven (Gen 28:17) Certainly those working there have had the privilege of preparing hundreds of souls for that ultimate moment in their lives! Many have been brought to our Hospice suffering and afraid and have found comfort, peace and alleviation of their pain. The nursing staff, under the supervision of a dedicated doctor and matron, care for each patient as though that person is Jesus Himself. Our Hospice is dedicated to St Maximillian Kolbe, martyr of Auschwitz, who gave his life that another might live. St Maximillian ministered to others condemned to death with him and he continues to minister to the dying patients at our Hospice as some of ourpatients have testified to his presence with them in their last days.
