Stay with us Lord

on our journey”

St Vincent de Paul Society


Here at St Charles Church in Rishton we have a Conference of

St Vincent de Paul where we hope to give some help to those

in need in our Parish.


Please help and support those involved in the society and pray

for those who they try to help.


From time to time there will be a collection to help the funds

of the society in order to help those in need so could we ask

you to please give generously to these appeals.


Recently we have been collecting food to pass on to those in need

in the parish and we ask you to bring any food into church and we will take it up to

the altar with the Offertory Gifts. Father will then give it out to those in need who call.


If you feel that you may be able to help by joining the

St Vincent de Paul Society please contact Father Martin or Colin Yates.  

We hold a meeting in the chapel every two weeks

which we aim to last about 30 minutes and everything it kept

confidential, we plan who we are to visit before the next meeting.

The next meeting of the St Vincent de Paul Society will be shown on the Parish Newsletter




 At Mass each weekend we take up to the altar with the gifts of bread and  wine all the food that  has been donated during the week.

 And then on Monday morning we deliver it to Our Food Bank to help those in need  and then it is distributed by the staff to the needy in the area.

 If you can spare any food please bring it in to church on a Saturday or  Sunday and we will take it to help this worthy cause.
