St. Vincent de Paul at

Holy Family of Nazareth

At our last meeting of our conference of SVdP we evaluated two grants totaling $279.35 for electric bills and five grants for rent totaling $1,050.  The total of $1,329.35 is a typical amount for recent meetings.  Before making the grants we review the funds available, including the "bag" we passed around that night. Often we need to pare down some amounts, particularly requests for rent.  At the end of the night we generally have a bank balance of less than $100.  That is why your weekly donations in the alms box on the wall in the narthex are so vital to our mission of helping the poor.

We encourage others to join those who make a weekly stop at that box.

 As always, thank you.  You are always in our prayers.



For the past 32 years the Church of the Incarnation has helped feed over 350 people of Holy Cross Parish during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season with the help of your donations. Any donation is welcome. The following are some possible donation suggestions:

Brown sugar, white sugar, canned vegetables or fruit, cake mix with icing, stove top dressing or cornbread mix, canned pie filling.

The Food Pantry at Holy Cross is a year round ministry. Donations are always appreciated.

Thank you for your continuing support of this ministry.
