ac Welcome to the Ontario Regional Council of St. Vincent de Paul



MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
December 8, 2014
Dear fellow Vincentians
On behalf of the Ontario Regional Council of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, may I wish you and your families a most Holy Christmas. May we all take time to reflect on why we are Vincentians. It is because of the child born on Christmas day and the message he preached throughout His life. Love your neighbor and care for the poorest of the poor.
I thank everyone for your efforts this year and for the inspiration I receive from meeting you and hearing about the many great works of charity and justice you perform every day on behalf of our humble organization.
Please pray for our friends and neighbours in need.

Yours sincerely,
Jim Paddon, President
Ontario Regional Council
Society of Saint Vincent de Paul
