St. Vincent de Paul May Appeal
As we continue to serve our neighbours in need, we have increased the amount we give to each household in an attempt to keep up with the rise in prices we all are experiencing. As always, we can do this only because you have been so generous with both your money and your prayers. We ask that you please consider responding to our annual May appeal. Appeals to our parish help us raise the funds we need to distribute the necessities of life to our friends in need. It runs for the month of May. If you have envelopes we would appreciate your support. If you don’t have envelopes and donate monthly, you may have already allocated a donation for May. Thank you. If not, you can go on line and do a one-time donation on the St Peters website and select “My donation is for St. Vincent de Paul” or if you send a cheque to the parish office indicate Donation to St Vincent de Paul. Thank you for your on-going and generous support.

Audio/Visual Spiritual Resources
