January Group Walk on the SNETT - Jan 20


Please join us for our monthly group walk on the SNETT. Our January walk is planned on Monday, January 20th, 2020 (MLK Holiday) at 10 AM at the Center Street Trailhead in Bellingham.

Keep an eye on the event here or our Facebook page for any changes due to weather.

See you on the trail!

Please note: We are changing the location to Center St. trailhead in Bellingham. Since we are going to be walking by the Kindness Rocks spot, please feel free to bring a kindness rock or two to add. Thank you.

When: Monday, January 20, 2020 at 10 AM – 11:30 AM

SVdP Friends of the Poor Walk - Thank you!

St. Mary’s Church Franklin, MA
St. Vincent de Paul

2019 St. Vincent de Paul Friends of the Poor Walk

St. Mary's St. Vincent de Paul would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who was involved in the 2019 SVdP Friends of the Poor Walk. This year we were happy to see more than 80 parishioners and community members participate in the walk. It was wonderful to see the Ursuline soccer team and many members of the Franklin High School freshman field hockey team participate along with some of St. Mary's confirmation students.
SVdP Friends of the Poor Walk - Thank you!
Thank you!

One hundred percent of the donations stay in Franklin and will go directly to support any of our Franklin neighbors in need.

All of your help and contributions are greatly appreciated. Special thanks to the St. Mary's Knights of Columbus for their support and contributions of drinks and energy snacks.

Thank you again for your generous contributions and for helping us to work on our goal of "Neighbors helping neighbors."

SVdP Friends of the Poor Walk - Thank you!
