Society of Saint Vincent de Paul

December 2, 2022

Once again, our Society of Saint Vincent de Paul invites you to help families who are struggling at Christmas by taking an Angel from our baskets in the church main lobby which will be available for return until the weekend before Christmas (Dec17/18). Instead of purchasing gifts, we will be giving our families store gift cards so they can safely purchase gifts themselves. Your help is needed more than ever before. Our families depend on your generosity and will be grateful for anything you can give to help them celebrate Christmas this year. You can also donate online and receive a tax receipt at www.ssvphaltonpc.org/Donate. Please make sure to select St. Benedict Milton. If you have any questions you can contact us by email: ssvp.stbenedictsconference@gmail.com or call us at 905-875-7995


November 4, 2023

November 13, the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, is the World Day of the Poor. Your Society of Saint Vincent de Paul invites you to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters, especially at this uncertain time. We encourage you to lend a hand. In this very busy period, we always need volunteers and, of course, financial help is always appreciated. You may donate to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul team in our community, or directly to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, via the national website, at www.ssvphaltonpc.org/Donate.

Who Is My Neighbor?

“And who is my neighbor?” This quote prompted the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 29-37) which was a story of special personal significance to Frederic Ozanam, founder of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This parable asks us to stop and think about our brothers and sisters in need.  We are asked to look to our brothers and sisters in the world and to see the face of Jesus in them. Our neighbor is the one in need, the one who looks to us with hope and faith, the one who hopes for Christ. Do I see Christ in the face of my neighbor– and does my neighbor see the face of Christ in me?  Do you feel the calling to help those who are less fortunate? Do you ever ask yourself “I wish I could help?”. Well, you can! No matter of your age or your skill if you have a few hours a month to spare join the Society of St. Vincent De Paul at our parish. If you are interested in making a difference and would like to find out more of what we do, please call us at 905-875-7995 or email us at ssvp.stbenedictsconference@gmail.com .
