Christmas is a happy and peaceful season for most people, thank God. But we at St. Vincent de Paul are well aware that it is not so happy for some in our community. As the season approaches, we receive requests for help just to enable someone to put food on the table or to make Christmas happy for the children. 

Being able to respond to these requests and to lift the burden off someone’s shoulders is thanks to you, our loyal supporters. Your generosity enables us to visit and help families who need us throughout the year and especially at Christmas. 

2018 has been a struggle for many families. We have been involved with helping in various ways, mainly with food vouchers or with utility bills. School demands have become unmanageable---books, uniforms and extra-curricular activities can set back someone who is already having difficulty putting food on the table and paying essential utility bills. On top of these demands, there are first communions, confirmations, illness, job loss. 

Many of our clients lack management and budgeting skills with which we try to help. Many are lonely too, adding to their stress. Each case is assessed individually and we help as best we can. 

Advent 21This year, our Christmas appeal takes place at all Masses next weekend, 8th/9th of December. 
We know that each of you has your own demands and we really appreciate your generosity. 
Your donations allow us to look after others less fortunate. 

We wish you and your families God’s blessings, peace and good health this Christmas and always. 

St. Vincent de Paul, St Marys Conference, Lucan.
