My name is _________________ and I am a member of the St. Vincent de Paul conference here at __________________. I would like to spend a few minutes to tell you about our ministry and how you might benefit from growing your faith with us.

Jesus said, “The poor will always be with us”. Many are surprised to learn that the poor are found not just within the inner city or in deep rural areas, but also right here in our own local communities. They are families and individuals on a limited income who are having problems paying their rent, utility bills. They may have an unexpected car repair and can’t make it to work. Or they may not even have enough money to buy food for their children.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul can be found where there is poverty and people in need. While our work can be complex, our focus is simple: to grow in faith through serving our neighbor. Guided by the two great commandments: to love God and love our neighbor, we are a person-to-person Catholic ministry that sees the face of Christ in the faces of those whom we serve. We are in 73 parishes in the Archdiocese of Atlanta and Diocese of Savannah, in every state in the U.S., and 145 countries around the world. We have a conference at our parish because there are so many people in need in and around our parish. Through the Holy Spirit, you are the reason why we are able to support our neighbors. You donate money, food, clothing, and gift cards at Christmas. But what we also need is the gift of your time. I am here today to invite you to serve with us and put your Catholic faith into action.

Around the state we served close to 200,000 people last year and don’t have enough Vincentians to keep up. So we’re looking for volunteers to work with those in need, speak with them over the phone, visit them as a part of a team, give them food from our pantry, offer financial assistance, or simply listen to them. If you don’t think you can do it, trust me, you can. Those in need are often praying for a blessing – a miracle. A simple conversation with them can make a big difference in their life.
Many of you might also be thinking that you simply don’t have the time to squeeze another activity into an already busy lifestyle. With this ministry, the amount of time you wish to dedicate is completely up to you…whether it is one hour per week or one hour per month.

We have a table set up in the narthex with volunteers to answer your questions and a signup sheet if you want to learn more. There are also flyers next to the signup sheet with more information on the ministry and volunteer needs.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for what is right; they shall be satisfied.
Take the opportunity to put your faith into action and do God’s will, helping those who need it most.
Blessed are the merciful; they will be shown mercy.
Take the opportunity to put your faith in action and show mercy to those who are suffering. You won’t regret it.

Lastly, I will leave you with Christ’s words: “What you do for the least of mine you do for me”. If you have ever felt like Christ has called you to live those words, then this is the right ministry for you.

Buenos Días! Me llamo _____________________ y soy miembro de la Conferencia de San Vincete de Paúl, aqui en la parroquia de _________________________.

San Vicente de Paúl es una sociedad Católica de laicos que trabaja para ayudar a los pobres y necesitados. No somos una agencia de servicios sociales. Formamos un ministerio que trabaja con personas individuales y tratamos de ver el rostro de JesuCristo en cada persona que sufre. Trabajamos en la mayorïa de las parroquias de esta Diócesis; trabajamos en todos los estados de este país, y en 132 paises en el mundo.

“Los pobres estarán con nosotros siempre”!—–Se hallan los pobres en el centro de cada ciudad, y estan también en ___________(otro ciudad), ___________(otro ciudad), ___________(otro ciudad), y en cúalquier otro lugar. Son familias y individuales que tienen recursos limitados y problemas cuando tratan de pagar sus cuentas de renta, agua, y electricidad. A veces, no tienen dinero para comprar comida para los niños.

Donde hay pobreza y personas necesitadas, trabaja San Vincente de Paúl. Hay gente pobre que necesita asistencia en esta area, y por eso nuestra conferencia de San Vicente de Paúl se mantiene muy ocupada en esta parroquia de _________________. Somos un grupo pequeño de personas dedicadas, pero necesitamos la asistencia de otros, como ustedes.

Hoy vengo aquí para invitarle a usted para participar y servir con los otros miembros de San Vincente de Paúl. Les queremos ofrecer una oportunidad de poner en práctica la fe Católica, para servir a los que más necesitan nuestra ayuda.

Hay muchas personas que contribuyen fondos, los que necesitamos mucho, pero necesitamos especialmente el tiempo y la asistencia de personas como ustedes.

Necesitamos a voluntarios para visitar las casas de los necesitados, para llevarles comida, y a veces, ayuda financiera, y a veces, nada mas para sentarnos con ellos y poder escucharlos. San Vicente de Paúl ofrece otras opotunidades para voluntarios, por ejemplo: en los bancos de comida, en tiendas donde vendemos ropa, en los comedores donde alimentamos a la gente pobre, y muchas oportunidades mas donde usted puede ser un voluntario. Ustedes pueden decidir cuanto tiempo quieren trabajar —- una hora o mas cada semana, o una hora o mas cada mes. Dios los premiara!.

Para más información, pueden preguntar a nuestros voluntarios despues de la Misa . Tendremos una reunión ___________________para expliar lo que es necesario.

Ojalá y que puedan considerar este desafío y las palabras de JesuCristo: “Cuando lo hicieron con alguno de los más pequeños de estos mís hermanos, me lo hicieron a mí.” Yo no necsito su ayuda: JesuCristo la necesita, porque los hijos de Cristo son necesitados, y Cristo nos invita a servir a estas personas.

Después de la Misa, miembros y representantes de San Vicente de Paúl estaran en el salón detrás para explicar sus prequntas y aceptar nombres y números de teléfono de personas interesadas en ayudarnos.
Muchas gracias por su atención. Que Dios los bendiga a ustedes y a sus familias!
