St. Vincent de Paul – March 2022 Reflections
St Vincent DePaul Society is a Catholic lay organization that leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
Week of March 27th 2022: Fourth Sunday of Lent
In today’s Gospel the prodigal son repents and finds mercy in the heart of his father. Know that your penance during Lent can give the poor the grace of finding the merciful heart of God the Father.
In the month of March, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was able to assist families by providing food, utilities, rent bills and etc. Thank you!
*Checks made payable to Society of St. Vincent DePaul and dropped in the collection baskets will help us serve our neighbors in need throughout the Greenlawn area.

Week of March 20th 2022: Third Sunday of Lent
In today’s Gospel Jesus is quite clear in his message: “bear fruit or be cut down.” This Lent we are called to cultivate and fertilize our spiritual lives through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
Through your almsgiving you are performing a good work; far greater than you think. Know that your nickel, dime, or quarter is multiplied by the coins placed by others in the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box.
Week of March 13th 2022: Second Sunday of Lent
Lent is a call not just to “give up something” but more important to “give something for the poor.” Wherever you live in the parish, there are poor families within walking distance of your home. When in need, they ring the rectory bell. They are, in effect, ringing your doorbell.
Is there a family you know who needs assistance? Please call the Society of St.Vincent de Paul so that together we can help the poor, the suffering, and the deprived.
Week of March 6th 2022: First Sunday of Lent
In today’s Gospel, Jesus overcomes the temptations to wealth, power and esteem. As we begin Lent, may we open our hearts to the grace of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
Your gift in the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box will help the poor to celebrate the grace of God’s love this Easter.
We want to feel that our country is on the right track and that our church is serving God’s people as well.
On Pentecost Sunday at the 12 Noon Mass, Fr. Peter, assisted by Deacon Jim, administered the Sacrament of Confirmation to two sisters – Emilia and Federica Paiva.
