The primary way in which our parishes help our neighbors in need is though our St. Vincent de Paul Conferences. The Conference is made up of a team of people who volunteer to meet or call back people from our neighborhoods who have requested financial help. There has been some interest from folks to join, but still not enough. Take a next step to learn more and reach out to Deacon Ron Ryan at St. Joan of Arc Parish @ (402) 558-3100 or Maureen Roberts at St. Thomas More @ (402) 917-4776.
Another way to learn more but not yet commit is to attend an SVdP orientation on Saturday, November 6 from 9am – 1:30pm @ Holy Family, 1715 Izard Street, Omaha, NE 68102. Here’s what you’ll learn and how you will grow!
