Week of May 30th 2021: Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

As we celebrate the mystery of the Trinity we also realize the mystery of how much God loves and cares for us each day. Believing in this our lives can then overflow in thanksgiving and praise.

Your gift in the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box will help the poor to believe in the mystery of God’s love for them.

*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 May 23rd 2021: Pentecost Sunday

Today as we celebrate Pentecost the Holy Spirit wants to make us advocates of God’s presence to bring new life to others, especially those who do not know the love of God in their lives.

This month, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was able bring the love of God to the poor by assisting families by providing them food, utilities, rent bills, etc. Thank you!

Week of May 16th 2021: 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.

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

Week of May 9th 2021: Sixth Sunday of Easter

In the Gospel today, Jesus says to us, “This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you…You are my friends if you do what I command you.”

By your gift to the Society of St.Vincent de Paul you fulfill this commandment.

Week of May 2nd 2021: Fifth Sunday of Easter

In the Gospel today, Jesus says “Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.” Indeed, by helping the poor we can “bear much fruit” and we find that with Jesus we can do everything.

Your gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul will show that you are indeed the disciple of Jesus as it will bring your love to those who live in fear and doubt, loneliness and dread.
