St. Gabriel's and St. Raphael's Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) will co-sponsor this event to help those living in poverty in our neighborhoods.
On Saturday, September 29, 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 Rob Gordon (St. Gabriel) at 314-495-0889 or Steve Kratky (St. Raphael) at 314-800-7117. Won't you walk with us to serve the poor?
