St. Gabriel's and St. Raphael's Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) will cosponsor this event to help those living in poverty in our neighborhoods.
On Saturday, September 30, we will begin gathering at 8:30 a.m. on the church steps of St. Gabriel, pray together, then start off on the fun walk at 9:00 a.m.
Our 2-mile walk will take us to St. Raphael, through some of the neighborhoods of both our parishes, before returning to St. Gabriel's for light refreshments.
The cost for participating is a voluntary amount, and all proceeds and donations from the event will directly benefit the people in our area served by SVdP; no administrative fees are associated with the event.
Anyone interested in participating or making a pledge can visit www.fopwalk.org and indicate the parish conference you wish to assist. You may also sign up on-site the day of the race.
For questions, contact Lynette Olwig (St. Gabriel) at 591-1784 or Mary Reck (St. Raphael) at 353-8697. Won't you walk with us to serve the poor?
