Many Are Called…by St. Vincent dePaul
In fact, over 5,000 current volunteers have heard the call to become Vincentians in the state of Georgia! The first St. Vincent dePaul Conference in our state was established 120 years ago in 1903, by a small group of concerned parishioners at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta. Today the number of Conferences has grown to over 70 in Georgia, and our Transfiguration Conference is among the most active (a “Conference” is a group that serves a particular neighborhood area or zip code, usually the territory covered by the Conference’s affiliated parish). Check out www.svdpgeorgia.org and learn about the oldest, largest and most trusted state-wide social services safety net organization in Georgia!
And then, when you’re inspired to become a part of it all, come to our next meeting on Monday, December 11 at 7 p.m. in the Adult Lounge.
If you’re called to act sooner, consider donating to the Third Saturday Dinner for the homeless community, or round up some perishable food for our pantry. Click on the buttons below.
