Thank you from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul!
Over the past week, we prepared and delivered 120 hampers. Many thanks were received from our recipients. A sincere message of thanks to all who contributed to our 2021 Hamper Campaign: to the Christmas Hamper Committee, the Angel Tree organizers, the Knights of Columbus, parish schools for their support and the dozens of volunteers! We are grateful to Father Edmund, Father Raul, and our parish staff who supported our endeavor. May you all have a blessed and peaceful Christmas season!
