Patron of charitable societies
St Michaels branch of St Vincent de Paul's
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Christian voluntary organisation, working with poor and disadvantaged people.
Inspired by our principal founder, Frederic Ozanam, and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul, we seek to respond to the call every Christian receives to bring the love of Christ to those in need.
We are involved in a diverse range of activities:
At the moment SVdP consists of about 10 voluntary members.
If you are able too, please Make a Donation to our St Vincent de Paul Society at St Michaels.
Add us as a beneficiary in your will and testament. Leave a legacy…..
We NEED estate and cash donations urgently, financials are available for any willing donor.
Support and friendship
Through person to person contact, we are committed to respecting the dignity of those we assist and to foster their self-respect. In the provision of material and other support, we assure confidentiality at all times and endeavour to establish relationships based on trust and friendship.
We believe it is not enough to provide only short term material support.
Those we assist must also be helped to achieve self-sufficiency in the longer term and the sense of self-worth this provides.
When the problems we encounter are beyond our competence, we enlist the support of others more specialised.
PLEASE ADD TO YOUR ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS LIST: OR DONATE BY DEPOSIT OR DEBIT ORDER
Any amount will be used to assist the needy.
