NOW THE ST. VINCENT DePAUL SOCIETY ?
Notice in the bulletin that I picked up at Mass yesterday:
Please Note: Because of some difficulties at the national and the Diocesan level of the St. Vincent DePaul Society, we are, as of January 2009, discontinuing the St. Vincent DePaul envelopes in the mailed set. All monies previously donated to our St. Vincent DePaul Society will continue to be used for the purposes for which the donations were made.
As of January 2009, the St. Vincent DePaul envelopes will be replaced with the ST. JOSEPH HELPING HAND FUND ENVELOPES. These donations will be used FOR THE SAME PURPOSE - to temporarily help our parishioners that are in need.
What is happening to the St. Vincent DePaul Society? I haven't seen anything in the news.
Are we to suffer through a total meltdown in confidence in Catholic institutions across America? I thought St. Vincent DePaul was solid.
