SVP Epiphany Party

As we approach the season of Lent, we are reminded of the ongoing commitment by members of the St Vincent de Paul (SVP) society.  They regularly give pray and give alms and assistance to those in need in our parish and in the city of Lancaster.

What has become an annual tradition is the Epiphany party for older members of the parish and those who find it difficult to get out of the house.  In January they come together for food, fun and fellowship.  A chance to meet others, to sing some festive songs, this year to listen to the some traditional folk stories, play some bingo and a few even took to the floor for a dance.

The video shows some of the highlights and is a reminder of a great afternoon.  It will be shared with the SVP group who Lancaster are twinned with in India. 

Please remember members of the SVP in your prayers as well as those who help.  Maybe you would like to get involved, perhaps do something this Lent to help collect funds for the SVP society.
