2020 has been a year of great disaster and great suffering to many people. It has been a pleasure for the members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to be a part of bringing some light to the dark world of the needy.
It has been a pleasure to witness the delight that helping the needy brings to both the recipient and the messenger. We are hoping that the pandemic will either pass or it will be feasible to live with it without too much danger. We will continue to do our best to promote the ideals of the Society and to help all who ask.
Thank you for all your support. S.S.V.P. Members. Keep Safe
