After Jesus was baptized, He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and a voice was heard “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” As we minister to the poor, we also can hear these same words. Therefore, as you help those who are suffering, know in your heart the truth of the words “you are my beloved in whom I am well pleased.”
This past year, through your gifts, St. Dorothea’s St. Vincent de Paul Society was able to assist 868 people with $13,436 in donated goods & services and $52,059 in financial assistance for basic necessities such as rent, utilities and medicine. Our volunteers made 290 in-person visits. Additionally, we expended 4,953 hours of volunteer service to run our organization, raise funds and assist the poor.
