St. Vincent de Paul Conference 

at Holy Family of Nazareth

 We finished up 2018 by teaming up with two other Irving ministries for $750 to get an individual into a new apartment.

Also, we had a last minute request from a woman of 65 that we had helped before.  Her application for disability has been approved with the first payment coming in mid-January.  Meanwhile she is living in her car and needed funds for gas to keep it warm at night.  We were able to provide a week stay at a local motel.

Every week ask "What did we receive from the alms box?" and we put it to work for others.  We receive the "relieved" and "hope filled" thanks from these friends.  We pass them on to you with our thanks and prayers.
