Boundless Mercy: Received, Now Given


Our beloved Pope Francis has declared this the Year of Mercy, reminds us that as we have received God’s boundless mercy, we now have a responsibility to show that mercy, care and concern to others.

With a gift to the ACA, the virtue of mercy is shown to help: feed the hungry; clothe the needy; provide a presence of Christ in hospitals, schools and prisons; strengthen parishes throughout our Diocese; provide funding for social outreach programs; help retired priests as well as educate future priests; and many other programs and services throughout our Diocese.

When you support the Annual Catholic Appeal, you do more than just provide financial support – you change lives.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

VEHICLES NEEDED FOR PRIESTS

The Diocese of Tucson needs gently used vehicles (well-maintained, 60,000 miles or less) for use by priest from developing countries who will be serving in our diocese.  Many of these priests will be assigned to rural areas where they can easily drive 15,000-20,000 miles annually.  The Diocese will tune up the vehicle, perform minor repairs, and replace tires as needed.  If you would like to donate a vehicle, please contact John Shaheen, Property Director for the Diocese, at 838-2570.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul welcomes all who wish to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbor. Pope Francis says, “We can offer what little we have. We certainly have a few hours of time, some talent, some expertise.” If you have some time weekday mornings, please call Lynn at 219-0899. Thank you.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has helped over 356 families with your generosity. Each family is provided food from our pantry. This is the food you donate in the blue barrels at Mass and from the Community Food Bank. We also help with rent and utilities,bus passes, and clothing vouchers, as well as beds from the St. Vincent de Paul Store. We could not do any of this without our volunteers who take care of the pantry, answer phone calls Monday-Friday, and make home visits. Thank you for your kind donations of food, money and time.

Please remember to support us through the Fry’s, Safeway, and Albertson’s cash reward programs. May God bless you.

                 A Call to Serve

On April 23, 1833, a group of six young students in Paris, France met and laid the foundation of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Their purpose was “to insure their faith by works of charity.” Today we continue to pursue the same goal. If you would like to discuss becoming a member of the society of St. Vincent de Paul, please call Dan Torring1ton at 425-0661.  Someday, we will be privileged to hear these words from Jesus Himself: “I was hungry and you fed me … homeless and you took me in.”

                                  Thrift Stores

The Thrift Stores in Tucson that are operated by the St. Vincent de Paul Society are located at 820 S. 6th Ave. and 5426 E. Pima St. They are in need of volunteers at both stores and at the Council Office. They also are in need of furniture, especially sofas, kitchen tables, and unsoiled mattresses. Miscellaneous household items are always welcome and appreciated, as well as clothing, especially men’s clothing. They also gratefully accept donated collectible items and vehicles.
