NATIONAL FRIENDS OF THE POOR® WALK
Saturday, September 28th @ 9:00 am – 10:00, Saint Patrick Parish

Help support the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at Saint Patrick Parish!

Join us for a one-mile walk up and down Main Street in Stoneham to support the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. The cost to register as a walker is $10 and all proceeds will go directly to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Saint Patrick Parish.  

We will be walking from the big parking lot behind Saint Patrick Church to the South School parking lot and back!

The “Walk” route is from the big parking lot behind Saint Patrick Church to the South School parking lot and back!

The St. Vincent de Paul Society provides food and other emergency assistance to local residents. The people they help are your neighbors & friends. Just think – when the winter storms begin to blow, there will be children right here in Stoneham who will have a good meal or heat in their homes as a direct result of your efforts. 

Each year our Walk raises thousands of dollars for the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. We hope this year will be another great success!

Religious Education students who sign up for the walk will earn 1 hour of service time for registering and an additional hour for every supporting sponsor ($10) they recruit. 

All students are welcome to join us! Children in grades 1-4 must be accompanied by an adult. Older children may walk with the group, but must turn in a signed permission form before the walk in order to participate.

The walk will begin with a gathering in Our Lady of Providence Hall.  Bring your registration form and donation sealed together in an envelope and drop it in one of the baskets by the door.

October is the month of the Rosary

The month of October is dedicated to the Blessed Mother.  Catholics are encouraged to pray the Rosary together as a family.  The Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (National Director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith from 1950 to 1966) developed the World Mission Rosary.  Each of the five decades is a different color to represent areas of the world where the church continues her evangelizing mission. The MCA World Mission Rosary comes with a booklet that explains the colors of this Rosary, and offers age-appropriate mission reflections for the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous Mysteries.

Saint Patrick Religious Education participates in the Missionary Childhood Association of the Archdiocese of Boston.  This year all Grade 3 students will receive a World Mission Rosary from MCA at our Rosary Workshop on January 14, 2014.

The Missionary Childhood Association has a wonderful website for children to explore and learn more about the missions.  Visit them at: http://www.hcakids.org/
