Announcements and News from our Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference:





Want to get involved with a new group and help others?  If so, why not attend our next  meeting.


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, please join us the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima to learn more about the work of our conference. A little time and a caring heart are all you need.



The food depot is in desperate need of household cleaning items and paper products. Our clients are not able to purchase these items with their Bridge Cards as they may only purchase food items.  We all know how necessary these products are to a household. Please bring what you can and place it on the table in the gathering area.


Your generosity and compassion for our less fortunate neighbors has been and continues to be overwhelming and is deeply appreciated.
