St Vincent de Paul Society

SVDP CHRISTMAS APPEAL

 

“Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters you do to me.”

 

We are reminded He is still among us in those in need of his compassion and love.  His feet are fastened, His hands are tied, His tongue silenced.  Now it is our turn to be His feet, hands, voice.  Every time we do good to another it makes a difference to that one person.  Where do we find Jesus?  Wherever there is need for a word of encouragement, a listening ear, a bowl of soup, a visit to someone unable to leave their house.  It is not only physical needs, but the needs of the soul and the spirit.  “The greatest evil in the world is the lack of love, the terrible indifference towards one’s neighbour.” (St Teresa of Calcutta) Lord, may we as your disciples produce the fruits of love.  As we reflect on the above our thoughts turn to those families who need a little help at Christmas- so once again we ask for your assistance in providing hampers and some festive cheer.  The baskets will be in the church until  14th December to receive any suitable food or drink for  packing.  Also, the “Giving Tree” for “Special needs People” where tags are provided for specific gifts - please place your tag on the gift.  Vinnies are also appreciative of any monetary donation.

 

Thank your for your generosity.
