WHO CARES? – THE SVP CARES
The St.Vincent de Paul Society in our parish began in 1969 and has continued ever since, reaching out and caring for the elderly, sick, lonely and bereaved. We are a small group of five full time and one auxiliary member, meeting fortnightly after a Mass – The EUCHARIST – THE SOURCE OF OUR WORK. We come together to deepen our spiritual life, to encourage each other and to maintain our links with the wider SVP Society. We visit in a spirit of quiet humility, service and confidentiality. During the last twelve months our visits have totalled 69 to hospital, 106 to care homes and 218 to own home visits as well as 54 lifts to Mass, medical appointments and parish social events. To emphasise the universality of the Society and be a witness of Christian charity in action we also support a Twinned group in Kerala, India.
New members are very welcome. Please leave your name and contact details with our Parish Office.
“Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance”.
