November 29, 2015 St Vincent de Paul Christmas Food Box Program The St Vincent de Paul Conference at SJD is again sponsoring approximately 30 local families in need through their annual Christmas Food Box Program. Each of the families will be supported with a box of special Christmas food and gift cards to help with the purchase of Christmas gifts for their family members. After all masses over the weekends of November 27/28, December 5/6 and December 12/13, SVdP members will be in the narthex accepting donations for the Christmas gift cards. Additionally, parishioners can sign up to deliver the Christmas boxes (on Saturday, December 19) to those families unable to come to the pantry for pick up.
