The St. Vincent de Paul Society meets every second Friday of the month. Our mission is to provide food for the hungry and support in the community where it’s greatly needed. We have a food bank that is open every Friday from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. We have a social gathering two hours before where we give people a chance to visit and talk about their problems, with the intention that they help each other to find help they may need that is beyond our ability to assist with. This also gives us an opportunity to evangelize. If you are interested in joining the SVdP Society please contact Kim at 744-2519.
St. Vincent de Paul Youth
We are recruiting young people for our St. Vincent de Paul Youth. The SVdP Youth conference provides an excellent organization in which young people can grow spiritually as well as give service. It is an opportunity for Youth to use their talents to make a difference in others’ lives. The age group that would be invited to join are 7th graders through Seniors in High School. Youth will put their faith into action, gain a deeper understanding of the Society, develop social justice advocacy awareness, participate in various service projects and earn service hours, develop leadership skills, grow closer to God by serving others, build young leaders for tomorrow’s future and increase self-worth. If you or someone you know is interested in joining our SVdP Youth contact Kim Wyatt at 260-744-2519 or 260-267-8371 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Vincent de Paul “Brown Bag Collection”
Remember to bring in you brown bag of nonperishable foods by Feb 12th. Every Friday the Sacred Heart St Vincent de Paul Society has a food bank that is open to anyone living in the Fort Wayne area. We currently serve an average of 110 families each Friday. We hope the Brown Bang Collection will help in filling our shelves with food. This gives everyone an opportunity to help feed the poor in our city and work on our corporal works of mercy. Again our next brown bag collection will be Feb 12th. Thank you in advance for helping support our Food Bank here at Sacred Heart.
