Lent Almsgiving This Lent our almsgiving offering will be given to the Society of St Vincent de Paul. You will find envelopes in the pews with a St Vincent de Paul label. According to custom, you are asked to make a sacrifice of eating one small meal in place of a large one and place the difference of the cost in your almsgiving offering. Please return your offering by Easter. The Society of St Vincent de Paul operates with the generosity of YOU. Thank you for your generosity.
