To Serve in Hope
In late January, the Mission & Outreach Committee approved a grant to support the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul–Lebanon in their COVID relief efforts. They quickly used the funds to purchase 8 oxygen concentrators. The need in Lebanon is great. Our support will not address all the suffering, but it has helped a number of elderly community members survive the pandemic. Please join the Mission & Outreach Committee in praying for the people of Lebanon.
Founded in 1833 by a group of young laymen, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is a lay Catholic organization of women and men, who wished to put their faith into action. From the start, the Society has been under the patronage of Saint Vincent de Paul, a great saint, well-known for his works of charity.
The members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul maintain the Vincentian spirit. Their vocation rests on two basic principles: continuing prayers (deepening their faith) and the meeting with Christ through the poor. These principles lead them to serve the very poorest with a deep respect, no matter where they come from, or what they believe, thus developing long-term and personal relationships.
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul-Lebanon was founded 1860 with the main objective to provide assistance to the poorer and supply them with their most urgent needs.
