SVP (St Vincent de Paul)

The St Vincent de Paul Society (or as it is often known - the SVP), is an

international Christian voluntary lay organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and

disadvantage by providing practical assistance to those in need – irrespective of

ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender. It seeks, in the spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering poverty in whatever form.

Our group, known as a “conference,” focuses on the following activities:

 

·         Visiting the sick and housebound

·         Providing transport to church when required

·         Providing financial support when needed and if possible.  

·         Collecting to support Styal Prison inmates -   See cupboard in church porch

 

If you or your friends/acquaintances know of absolutely anyone locally who would like to have an occasional visit or could do with some help, please contact SVP President Mick Johnson on 485 4701.

Our conference meets once per month in the sacristy or Upper Room at St. Ann’s for about 45 minutes on the first Sunday of the month at 9.30am.  

 

At present, in light of Covid19, we are only holding virtual meetings.

 

SVP Summer Camp (Vinnie Camp) August 2nd to 8th 2020

Regretfully, it has been necessary to cancel this year's camp owing to Covid 19.  It is hoped that some much lower key substitute may be arranged so keep looking here, please.
