The mission of the St. Anselm Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society is to follow Christ through service to those in need and by doing so, bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love. Vincentians show their commitment through person-to-person contact, in the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

Friends of the Poor Walk

Sunday, September 25

Our Saint Vincent de Paul Conference is organizing their Annual Friends of the Poor Walk on Sunday, September 25th after the 11am Mass. This is our biggest fundraiser and this year more than ever we are relying on your support. Our conference has broken its records in terms of number of people served, we are working in very close collaboration with the Sudbury social services, individuals and families are hurting and we are able to provide meaningful assistance. All the money you give or raise will be used to help, we have no overhead costs. The walk is easy but it has a big impact.

Thank you for your support and your generosity! See you on September 25th!
