SVP Awareness Month

September is SVP awareness month and the theme this year is “Welcoming the Stranger”. During the month we will cover the different aspects of the Society’s work in our parish.

Lord, help us to use our resources wisely and to encourage others to do the same so that we may all share the world’s resources.

The SVP welcomes the stranger like Alice by providing food to supplement the shopping of families and individuals in need to provide a more nutritious and balanced diet. Contact the Parish Office to find out more about the work of the SVP here in St Joseph’s.

“The stranger is often the hand of God. Not the drainer of resources, but the donator of gifts.”
Sarah Teather, Director of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS)
