The weekend of January 28/29will be the fifth Sunday collection or our St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Conference at St. John Vianney.
This is a primary way that our parish reaches out to those in need within our community in a very concrete and personal way. Through your generosity and support we provide food, gas, rent & utility assistance, clothing and furniture to families in the Walnut Creek/Concord area.
This is an opportunity for our SJV family to show mercy to others - as Pope Francis reminds us: “to become agents of this mercy”.
All the funding for this important mission comes from these special collections throughout the year, so they are critical to sustaining our work. Please be generous in contributing so that we can continue to carry on the work of the Lord: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). Thank you!
