If you think you might be, please come to a meeting on Wednesday, April 25 at 6:30pm at the St. John’s Parish Center Boardroom! We will be discussing the possibility of forming a Saint Vincent de Paul Society here in our St. John-St. Paul Collaborative.
Maybe you’re not sure what the Saint Vincent de Paul Society does?
Briefly, the vocation of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society members is:
“…to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate love. No work of charity is foreign to the Society. It includes any form of help that alleviates suffering or deprivation and promotes human dignity and personal integrity in all their dimensions. The Society serves those in need regardless of creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender or political opinions. It strives to seek out and find those in need and the forgotten, the victims of exclusion or adversity. Faithful to the spirit of its founders, the Society constantly strives for renewal, adapting to changing world conditions. It seeks to be ever aware of the changes that occur in human society and the new types of poverty that may be identified or anticipated. It gives priority to the poorest of the poor and to those who are most rejected by a community.”
If you or a friend feel that you might be called to serve those in Wellesley who are in need — please come to the meeting on April 25th!!
