The special collection for the Saint Vincent de Paul Society takes place at all Masses in Sacred Heart Church this Sunday, 18th December 2011. This had been announced as a Church door collection, but, as another worthy charity has been granted the permit for a Church gate collection, rather than have those attending Mass encounter two collections outside, the SVP collection will be taken up along with the Church offertory collection. The amount over the normal average weekly collection will be deemed to be what has been contributed to SVP. If you wish to put the envelopes from the SVP door collection into this collection too, we can pass them on to SVP also.
This is a chance to support the important work of the parish Saint Vincent de Paul Society conference. This group works selflessly and wisely during the year supporting those in need in our midst.
