Live the Gospel
In the Gospel, Jesus says: "There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves," and taking the five loaves and two fish, he blest them and gave them to the disciples to feed the crowd. The Society of St Vincent DePaul gives us an opportunity to help people in a similar way.
Our St Vincent De Paul conference celebrates its first year of service this summer. Through your gifts to the Society of St Vincent De Paul we were able to provide assistance with food, rent, and utility bills to local families. The McMerty Food Pantry is able to supply food to those in need.
The Society of St Vincent De Paul is a Catholic lay organization that helps those in need or those living in poverty. We grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to people in need. We see "the face of Christ" in those we serve as Jesus taught us when he said, "whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters you do to me." Please consider joining us on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.
