A Mission to Serve the Poor
The St. Mary’s parish branch of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, a Roman Catholic charitable organization named after the 17th
century French priest who dedicated himself to serving the poor, has scheduled another “walk“ for October 15.
Last year’s event had more than 140 participants in ”The Friends of the Poor Walk,” which is the only formal fundraiser that the St. Mary's Society holds each year. One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly back into the community to help anyone in need. Last year the SVdP assisted 345 families, according to co-organizer, Nancy Schoen
Information on the event, which starts on the Common at 9 AM is available at https://www.fopwalk.org/eventlisting/eventdetail/?eventid=2750
