“Stay with us Lord
on our journey”
Here at St Charles Church in Rishton we have a Conference of Society of
St Vincent de Paul where we hope to give some help to those
in need in our Parish.
Please help and support those involved in the society and pray
for those who they try to help.
From time to time there will be a collection to help the funds
of the society in order to help those in need so could we ask
you to please give generously to these appeals.
Recently we have been collecting food to pass on to those in need
in the parish and we ask you to bring any food into church and we will take it up to
the altar with the Offertory Gifts. Father will then give it out to those in need who call.
If you feel that you may be able to help by joining the
St Vincent de Paul Society please contact Father Farrell or Colin Yates.
We hold a meeting in the chapel every two weeks
which we aim to last about 30 minutes and everything it kept
confidential, we plan who we are to visit before the next meeting.

The next meeting of the St Vincent de Paul Society will be shown on the Parish Newsletter
At Mass each weekend we take up to the altar with the gifts of bread and wine. All the food that has been donated during the week is left at the back of church.
And then on Monday morning we deliver it to Our Food Bank to help those in need and then it is distributed by the staff to the needy in the area.
If you can spare any food please bring it in to church on a Saturday or Sunday and we will take it to help this worthy cause.
