Social Concerns: St. Vincent de Paul Now Serving Moorestown, Crop Walk, & More

St. Vincent de Paul Now Serving Moorestown

If you are interested in helping local people in financial need, there is a new opportunity in Moorestown through which you can participate in many ways, including being trained for home visits or simply doing administrative tasks behind the scenes. The Moorestown Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), in conjunction with the Moorestown Ministerium, is looking for volunteers. Home visit volunteers are trained to serve those in need by visiting in the home to provide compassionate and spiritual understanding, advice and assistance. Moorestown Ministerium congregations agreed to recruit volunteers in order to create this Moorestown Conference and have expressed gratitude for SVdP’s experience, structure and knowledge.

If you are interested, please contact Deacon Bill or Pastor Ingrid. People needing financial help should call the hotline 856-291-7313.

Crop Walk will be held on Sunday, May 6th

If you can’t walk this year, please consider donating to the CROP Walk or a fellow walker.

Live Civilly/Moorestown Ministerium Food Pantry

April was a bit chilly. Hopefully, May will be warmer. It is always warm in the pantry…the kindness of volunteers, the gratitude from patrons. Your gifts of food are always appreciated. Canned goods, other non perishable foods are always welcome.. —Connie O’Brien Pantry Coordinator

Lutheran Crossings

Lutheran Crossings Auxiliary has some exciting news to share! The Social Hall at the Crossings is going to be totally refurbished over a two-month period. Ceilings, flooring, and will be lighting replaced. Two outdated bathrooms will be replaced by two single occupant wheelchair accessible units.

If you have never been to the Social Hall, it is very much like our Fellowship Hall, only on the lower level of the Crossings. Our Auxiliary has donated $10,000 toward this project. That means if you have ever donated your used items for our sale you have contributed to this project! We would like to see some new families donate to our sale. If you could consider doing so, we’d really appreciate it.
