Moderator: Mrs. KK Schneider\r\n\r\nAs members of St. Vincent de Paul Society, our students, in a spirit of justice and charity, help those who are most in need. No work of charity is foreign to the society, for its ministry, through person-to-person contact, encompasses every form of aid that alleviates suffering and promotes the dignity and integrity of humankind.\r\n\r\nMembership All students are invited to join St.Vincent de Paul Society! Meetings, which are held during designated study hall periods, are announced at school. Students may contact Mrs. KK Schneider to receive a pass to attend the meetings.\r\n\r\nAspects of St. Vincent de Paul Society\r\n\r\nPrayer – Members invite students and faculty to join them in the chapel for prayer services, which are held on Friday mornings from 7:50 am to 8:00 am.\r\n\r\nCommunication – Members write “thank you” cards to our priests and parish leaders for their support of our students and liturgical events; and “thinking of you,” “get well,” and holiday greeting cards for the residents of our area nursing homes.\r\n\r\nMissions – Members promote, collect the envelopes for, and assist with counting and recording the donations to our weekly mission collections; select the recipients of special mission collections (for individual or group causes); and host bake sales during lunch periods to raise funds for future donations.\r\n\r\nWarm Hearts Campaign Students, administration, faculty, and staff who donate to this event receive a heart, on which they write their name, to display in the second wing. The funds are then donated to pay the utility bills of a local family in need of assistance.
