The Saint Vincent de Paul Society is a humanitarian effort sponsored by the Roman Catholic Church and locally organized by Sacred Heart Church on High Street in Mount Holly. It is lead by Laity and is not limited to just Roman Catholics. Several local denominations participate in the worthwhile endeavors of the Society.
At Saint Andrew’s, Irvane Spracklin coordinates our participation. We hold regular food collections which are then donated to the Society for their food bank caring for the poor and needy. The church school also participates by volunteering to sort and bag the food stuffs one Saturday a month.
Items of special need are published in our weekly Clarion and our monthly newsletter, Saint Andrew’s Matters. To help our efforts just bring canned and dried goods, paper products, and other non-perishable items to the church on Sunday. Leave them in the Narthex and the Turner’s will see that they are delivered to the Society.
