St. Vincent de Paul
St. Vincent de Paul recently held our annual Mass collection and Walk for the Poor.
We would like to thank all of you for your generosity for the ministry for the needy.
We receive dozens of calls from people in our area, regardless of who they are. Some of the things that we do are home visits to become familiar with the families we serve. Many times we discover other needs for which help is needed. We deliver food. When parishioners and children donate food, it is for St. Vincent de Paul and the Food Bank. Using the donated food makes it possible for us to then purchase fresh food for families.
We help keep many families from being evicted or having their utilities shut off. Winter is a bad time to be without heat or water. The needs are numerous and we do the best we can to help.
Now, along with a thank you, we have a request. YOUR help is needed as a volunteer for St. Vincent. Those of us who do the work receive spiritual as well as personal benefits. It is not always easy, but Jesus asks us to love our neighbor and feed the hungry. You may volunteer by calling the rectory or the St. Vincent number, 620-708-1863.
We would also to thank our incredible spiritual director, Sr. Agatha, for all she does for St. Vincent de Paul and her dedication to our community.
Again, Thank you very much for your support and donations.
