“Speak, Lord.  Your servant is listening.” 

Does it seem to you that when you become quiet, you sense a call to help people who currently are in need?

It could be that when you hear of the ongoing work of fellow parishioners in the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul,  with its emphasis on compassionate and effective action – something within you says, “Here I am, Lord.  I come to do your will”

Green Bag Collection

Ever wonder what happens to the money you put in the St. Vincent de Paul monthly Green Bag? Wonderful things happen! Your hand in the Green Bag is a hand that touches the outstretched hands of the poor, giving hope and fighting hunger. Your generous donations allow the Vincentian Society at St. Peters to provide food and hope to over 350 of our hungry Brothers and Sisters per month. For some families this food is critical to feeding their children and themselves. We also help our Homeless Friends in the area with non-perishable food, toiletries, and bus passes. As you can see we have a busy mission to support the poor and your unselfish help is critical. Thank you! As Jesus said “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, so you do unto me.” Matthew 25:40.   (complements of Dawn Smith)
