St. Joseph's Day Table 2012

update: 26 March 2012

The St. Vincent de Paul Conference would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mike Mendola for preparing our wonderful St. Joseph’s Table! This continues to be our Conference’s biggest fundraiser of the year and the generous donations of time, talent and treasure from over 200 people who attended, set up, served (including some of the kids from our Confirmation class), cooked, cleaned up, donated baskets and/or purchased tickets to the basket raffle will enable us to continue to help area food pantries, send inner city youth to summer camp, assist those in need within our community and dozens of other worthwhile projects. We thank you for sharing in the wonderful spirit and fellowship of the day! Viva San Giuseppe!
