Volunteers – Canice’s Kitchen
Canice’s Kitchen is a gathering place for street people. They are the heartbeat of our parish. The kitchen is open every day for lunch from 11- 1pm. We rely entirely on our wonderful donors and our volunteers who come from all over Sydney.
Volunteers begin work around 8.30am and finish around 1.30pm. If you are interested in the volunteering in our kitchen please click here.
The kitchen is also open every Wednesday night from 7pm until 8pm for the Inside Out Organic Soup Kitchen. For more information on IOOSK please click here to open link to Facebook page.

We are proud of the countless volunteers who give so generously of their time and selves to keep our doors open and put meals on the table.
Philosophy of St Canice’s Community:
The heart of our work at St. Canice’s is to reach out to one another without judgment, without condemnation. Every person is of absolute value and dignity. Not to reach out to the most rejected, the most despised, the most condemned would strike at the heart of our community and we would wither.
The health and vitality of our community at St. Canice’s is directly in proportion to the degree that we reach out to those who are on the outside. We cannot allow the community to die by shutting out the one who seeks refuge with us, who seeks companionship, who seeks food, hospitality, conversation.
