Through the month of November, parishioners from St. Rose of Lima and St. Patrick, Newry, donated slightly worn and new hooded sweatshirts towards this worthy cause.
This year a total of 223 sweatshirts, along with a few gloves, hats, and winter pants were collected for distribution to those who need them.
The members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society would like to say thank you to all who donated to this noble cause. When we give to the poor, God indeed pours his love, peace, and joy into our hearts, into our lives and into the hearts of those who are poor. God Bless You All!
