Our parish SVDP Conference is extremely appreciative of the wonderful support of our parish community. This support enabled SVDP to distribute Thanksgiving food boxes to 42 families, feeding 163 people and Christmas food boxes to 48 families, assisting 46 families, approximately 173 of our neighbors. Parishioners’ generosity through the Christmas Giving Tree also provided gifts to approximately 93 of our neighbors’ children or teens.
SVDP is dependent upon the assistance of parishioners as the need of our neighbors is so great. Inflation and the extraordinary cost of rent has hit hard our neighbors. In past years our conference would make 8 to 10 food deliveries a month. Since June of 2022 we average 5-8 food deliveries a week. Without the ongoing monetary and item donations of our parish the work of SVDP could not continue.
When a fifth Sunday occurs in a month, all the parishes in our Family of Parishes have a second collection for SVDP. There is an envelope for SVDP for next weekend, January 28th/29th, in the packet of envelopes that was mailed to all parish households, or cash or check may be placed in the basket during the second collection.
On February 11th and 12th there will be a “drive though-drop-off” collection of personal care and household items to help restock the SVDP pantry-toilet paper, laundry detergent, all purpose cleaner, dish soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and deodorant.
The combined SVDP Conferences of our Family of Parishes will be presenting again this year a Pasta Dinner on October 7th. Save the date for this evening of fun and good food in support of SVDP.
The monthly meeting of the OLV Conference is this Monday, January 23rd at 6:30pm in conference room B of the Parish Center. All are welcome to come and learn more about SVDP and how we help our neighbors.
