Society of St. Vincent de Paul Update - October 2020
BUNDLE DAYS - There will be no Bundle Days this Fall. We are scheduling a Spring '21 date and will advise you at that time. Items you donate in the SVDP bins in the back of the parking lots are being picked up and you can utilize them for your donations. Please, do not put any items outside of the bins.
THRIFT STORE - Our Thrift Store at Stevenson Hwy. and 12 Mile is open, however, due to these uncertain times we recommend you call before you go there as days and hours may change. The phone number is 1-248-206-5644.
FOOD DEPOT - The Food Depot is open, however, you should call before coming out also. Their number is the same as the Thrift Store's above.
FRIENDS WALK - The annual Friends Walk normally held the end of September was cancelled this year. This Walk is a source of income for our conference and we will miss the revenue.
Our SVDP Conference is active and responding to calls from our neighbors who seek help. Please include them in your prayers. Thank you for your compassion and generosity for those less fortunate.
Society of St. Vincent de Paul Our Mother of Perpetual Help Conference
Spirituality, Friendship, Service
These are the three cornerstones of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. If you are interested in serving those in need within our parish boundaries, and putting your faith into action. A little time and a caring heart are all you need.
The fundamental elements of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are Friendship, Spirituality and Service. It is the aim of all Vincentians (members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul) to continually grow in these area. Membership is open to all individuals who desire to help those in need and want to follow the spirit of the founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and the Vincentian’s patron and namesake, St. Vincent de Paul.
The Our Mother of Perpetual Help Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference provides critical support to the residents within the boundaries of our parish (Oak Park, Ferndale, and Royal Oak Township). Through their hands-on charitable work they are a vital part of the community, offering food assistance, emergency support and relief services to help enhance the lives of the less fortunate in our area.
