The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a well-known charitable organisation which operates at local, national and international level. Its volunteer members bring caring support and practical assistance to individuals and to families who are in need.
The local conference in Our Lady of the Rosary Parish is a small group of committed volunteers who work with families in the parish and in neighbouring communities. They offer helpful advice on available services and practical assistance with the cost of essential supplies.
The service is provided on a strictly confidential basis.
The local contact person is Nora Burke; telephone (061) 453 496.
The local conference continues to rely on the generosity of parishioners, who have always been very supportive of its work. Donations made through the Sacristy, when pandemic restrictions forced the cancellation of Church-gate collections, were greatly appreciated.
Regular monthly collections have been resumed and the special Christmas Collection will take place, after all Masses, on the first weekend of December.
