North of 60 Project – Heartfelt Thanks
The St. Maurice Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP) extends a very sincere thank you to all the generous parishioners here at St. Maurice for their wonderful response to this year’s project to help our fellow Canadian natives to the North in Rankin Inlet. This time around we were assigned breakfast cereals, hot and cold. Between boxes/packages that were brought in and monetary donations made, we amassed some 2,212 units of cereals, bordering on 75% of the rather high goal of 3,000 we were assigned. Given that this year we had a much shorter time frame (only 3 weeks) for collection, than we had for last year’s program, our results are rather excellent. The last of our cereals were loaded into the sea container this week. Yet once more your caring concern for the poor has shone forth and we at SSVP (as well as the poor in the North) are extremely grateful. May the Lord truly bless your kind hearts. If there are any questions, contact Kevin Burke at 613-228-1958.
