LOVE IN OUR WORKS - BULLETIN DECEMBER 4, 2022

In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist urges us to “Prepare the way of the Lord.” This is what Advent is all about, for we are called to help prepare the way of the Lord by making the real meaning of Christmas come alive in our own hearts, in our family and to reach out to those in need.

If you, or someone you know, are in need of the food pantry, please call the food pantry line directly at 708-289-0406 to enroll. You will need to provide ID and proof of residency in Our Lady of the Ridge - St. Linus parish boundaries. Pantry is the Second Saturday every month. For financial assistance call 708-289-4180 at Our Lady of the Ridge.

We can use gifts cards (Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, gas) for last-minute requests for Christmas help. If you prefer to help with a gift card, please place it in the SVdP poor box or bring it to the rectory. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

St. Vincent de Paul updates on a busy year so far:

Our Monthly Food Pantry is the second Saturday of each month. Each month we have on average about 73 families being fed. We enjoy the fellowship and friendship of our fellow Vincentians from both campuses. We spend approximately $3500 a month.

Financial Assistance Committee Group - Hard-working volunteers on call with a dedicated phone line to answer questions and provide guidance and financial assistance with rent, utilities, etc. for families within the parish boundaries.

Our Fiscal Year we have helped persons with over $17,000 in assistance, such as rent, mortgage, electric, gas, medical bills, cremation, and other financial needs.

Please know that none of these activities could be accomplished without your continued support to help those in need.

Our Lady of the Ridge - St. Linus St. Vincent de Paul Society is always in need of people to deepen their Vincentian spirit of friendship, and to be responsive to the Christian calling to help those in need. If you would be willing to share some of your time and talents in this work of charity, please join us! Our St. Vincent de Paul Conference meets the first Monday of the month in the St. Linus Cardiff Center at 7 pm.

We reach out to all parishioners young and old to consider helping our St. Vincent de Paul Conference in our many activities. Please send us an email at Meslar5@att.net or contact the Parish Reectory Office at 708-422-2400 if you are interested in becoming a member of our Conference or interested in helping at our Food Pantry. I can honestly say if you spend an hour or two with us, we guarantee you won’t regret it. Stop by for a visit and see our volunteers at work at our Food Pantry, second Saturday of the month between 7 am and 10 am at Our Lady of the Ridge Gym.

Sincerely,
Patti Meslar - President and Food Pantry Coordinator, SVdP local Conference
