It’s St. Vincent de Paul time

The collections to St. Vincent de Paul here at IHM helps many. Some of the money you donate goes towards purchasing food for our pantry and used to feed our neighbors in need. However, a large part of your donation is used to assist our neighbors when there is a crisis, or an unfortunate circumstance that prevents them from making ends meet. Your generosity last year enabled us to: - Provide 3,095 visits to offer material and spiritual help to neighbors in need - Serve 14,876 people from our food pantry - Distribute $158,390 in value of aid, including in-kind, throughout our community Your donation may be sent to St. Vincent de Paul c/o IHM or delivered to the Parish Office. It makes you a partner in the help we give to the less fortunate. Thanks Partner, and God Bless you for your generosity this Lenten Season.
