In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus gives us the Beatitudes, which embody a radically alternative vision of life and we find that God indeed calls us to blessedness.
The first quarter of 2008 (Oct. 1 thru Dec 31, 2007) your St. Vincent de Paul Conference was able to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom to the poor, by assisting 701 individuals with financial, shelter, utilities, transportation and funerals. We provided 376 food boxes. We also reported over 670 volunteer hours for conference meetings, home visits, dining room, newsletter, kids Christmas party , and various committee meetings and commitments. Our total Client Aid came to $10,292.33 (this dollar amount is a combination of donations from St. Charles Borromeo and other SVdP conferences who help in our ministry. Of course all of this could only be possible with your continued support of St. Charles Borromeo’s St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference. Thank You.
