Nagle Centre To Offer Support For At Risk Locals

Albury residents at risk of isolation and homelessness will be able to gain assistance following the opening of a new community centre named in honour of the late Justice John Nagle.

Officially opening the Nagle Centre today following a generous bequest left by Justice Nagle, St Vincent de Paul Society NSW State President Denis Walsh said the centre represents Vinnies NSW commitment to serving the Albury community.

“The Nagle Centre will have a profound impact for the region in providing assistance to those facing hardship and giving people the capacity to transform their lives,” Mr Walsh said.

“The centre will complement the neighbouring Olive Street complex opened earlier this year providing social and affordable housing for people on low incomes in Albury.

“Justice Nagle was a remarkable man. He may no longer be with us, but his legacy of compassion for the people and community lives on through this centre,” Mr Walsh said.

Today’s official opening was undertaken by Winsome Duffy, the daughter of Justice John Nagle, along with Mr Walsh, followed by a blessing by Albury Parish priest, Father Joel Wallace.

Attendees included Albury Mayor, Kevin Mack; State Member for Albury, Justin Clancy and St Vincent de Paul Society NSW CEO, Jack de Groot.
