Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Our St Vincent de Paul Society is thankful to St John Fisher parishioners, the Catholic Women's League and the Knights of Columbus for their generous contributions.

Every month, with your help, we are able to support between 40-50 families in our church boundaries with food and/or FreshCo or No Frills gift cards (about $2,000). In September, we usually support children with school supplies and in December, we provide Christmas hampers of non-perishable food items and gift cards.

This year because of Covid, we are not allowed to deliver food items and are mailing our gift cards. We were unable to hold our annual summer garage sale that usually raises about $1,500 and our Poor Box collection has drastically reduced from $1,200 to $300 each month.

Here's how you can help:

  • This Christmas please consider choosing St. Vincent de Paul as your charity. You can give cash or FreshCo/No Frills gift cards ($20/$30/$50). Place your contributions into the blue collection boxes.
  • Please consider becoming a regular donor. We can provide envelopes for planned giving and you will receive a tax receipt.
  • We are also looking for new members to support our service to the vulnerable.

If you feel called to assist, please contact our President, Joseph Ashok at (905) 487-2671. You have an opportunity to help your SJF Vincentians to see the Face of Jesus in the smiles of our poor this Christmas and through the year.

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40
