Recruiting for the Parish St. Vincent de Paul Society
We are busy recruiting new members. Would you be interested in becoming a member? As with many voluntary jobs, members often say that they get more out of the Society than they put into it, through the friends they make and the relationships they build up with people they visit. There is also satisfaction from knowing you are trying to make a difference in a practical way. If you would like an opportunity, why not talk to any member of our St. Vincent de Paul Society or ring 087 1482056.
