We pray for the poor of our community. Help us Lord to be obedient to your calling and live as your disciples. Renew our hearts to care for the poor. Help the poor see the greater Hope and Joy that is in you, and help them see the Hope that is alive in you.Lord, we thank you for your protection and abundant grace. Amen
COM officially has 1 month under her belt..whew! Through your generosity in the month of August we collected 3497.00. We served 25 families, the average pledge was $73.40. Our pledges were to rent, utilities, birth certificates, Driver's License and Gas Cards.. COM and its fantastic volunteers were able to navigate our clients to other local resources to help them with needs we couldn't meet. COM has made a commitment every month that 10% of our collection St Vincent De Paul Haven, Thrift Store and Housing facilities, our first check to SVdP was $350.00.
Lastly, not only do we get to monetarily help the needy, most importantly we pray for them. Many of our volunteers spent last weekend at the St Paul's Evangelization retreat. Our goal to learn and put into practice praying out loud not just rote prayer but fully engaging those we help with spirit-filled prayer and healing. Pray for our volunteers as they are doing the real work! God's Work!
We need a few more helpers- email me for more information c
