St. Vincent de Paul – May 2023

May 28, 2023 | Social, St. Vincent de Paul

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.

May 28th: Pentecost Sunday

Today as we celebrate Pentecost, Jesus says to his disciples: “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

This month, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul brought the love and care of Jesus to the poor by assisting families in providing them 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.

May 21st: The Ascension of the Lord

Today as we celebrate the feast of the Ascension we are reminded that Christ’s saving work on earth continues through his disciples…and now through us.

Is there a family you know who needs assistance? Please call the Society of St.Vincent de Paul so that together we can bring peace to those who are hungry.

May 14th: Sixth Sunday of Easter

In the Gospel today, Jesus says to us: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments…Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father and I will love him and reveal myself to him.

When we give to the poor, God indeed pours his love, peace and joy into our hearts, into our lives and through us into the hearts of those who are poor.

May 7th: Fifth Sunday of Easter

In the Gospel today, Jesus says “…whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father.

Through your almsgiving you are performing a good work; far greater than you think. The coins placed in the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box bring Christ love and compassion to the poor.
