WALK FOR THE POOR

The St Anselm Conference of St Vincent de Paul is holding a Walk for the Poor on Sunday, October 17th after the 11am Mass, from noon to 1:30pm. The walk is an easy stroll through the neighborhoods around St Anselm’s. People will also have the option to walk around the driveway/parking lot of St. Anselm’s. Participants should register their walk on the Friends of the Poor website https://www.fopwalk.org/. You will have to enter the name of your conference and the walk location. We will also have a table for paper registration and donations the day of the walk. After the walk, we will have hotdogs, popcorn, apples, water or lemonade, and apple cider. Anyone wishing to donate online to the St Anselm Conference’s walk, please go to https://www.fopwalk.org/ , choose “Massachusetts” and then scroll down until you see St Anselm FOP Walk.

Equipment and training is provided.  Simply arrive at Mass by 4:30 pm and leave right after. Volunteer on a regular basis or help out as needed. Please consider helping to make it possible to welcome all members of the community to participate in services at Saint Anselm.

Social Media– Do you like taking pictures on your iPhone? Recording videos? Making social media posts? All of our events need some sort of promotion or recognition. Many hands are needed in this area with a limited time commitment.
