Jim Beadles, the regional Director for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in our diocese, was on hand for our September meeting to officially install all our members into the society. Everyone prayed together the commissioning ceremony which invited members to deepen their commitment to the charitable service mission of Saint Vincent de Paul, to grow in holiness, and deepen their spirit of friendship with one another.
Members were presented with a lapel pen, an embroidered hat, and a certificate of membership. We were blessed to also have Joanne Croan and Deanery president Cary Petty in attendance. They were delighted to have an opportunity to meet our students. We are all looking forward to a very active school year of service!
