News from St. Vincent dePaul

Our SVDP conference at St. Walter has functioned with a small membership for many years.  At this time however, we only have 2 active members, one who spends time out of the state for a portion of the year.  Two active members makes it impossible to fill needed roles on the committee, complete annual reports, maintain financial records as well as serve those in need through ongoing home visiting.

We are looking at folding our conference by October 1, 2020 due to lack of sufficient membership  We are forever grateful  to St. Walter parish in supporting our efforts over many years.
