HELP! THE NEED NOW IS GREATER THAN EVER.
The St Vincent de Paul Society, or SVP for short, is a group of volunteer parishioners who set out to help anyone in need.
We need your help now more than ever as people suffer terrible hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are families short of food, lonely people who need a friend, homeless individuals and families, people struggling with financial hardship, or those facing illness.
Join us and work with us to help in whatever way you can – whether it is phoning someone for a chat, helping to give out food bank vouchers or giving someone a lift to the doctor. In addition, you could make a donation that would also be a huge help. Talk to Sydenham SVP members by calling us on 07494 162741.
PLEASE SUPPORT THE COLUMBAN MISSIONARIES BY SUBSCRIBING TO FAR EAST
Far East provides an insight into the mission work of different Columbans around the world and provides readers with a deeper awareness of our shared call through baptism to be God’s missionaries. ‘Far East’ will help you better understand other cultures and religions and the effects global economics and environmental degradation have on poor and marginalised communities around the world.
Often the stories are tragic tales of our failed human condition, the poverty, exploitation and inhumanity that mars our earthly existence. Yet, in the midst of despair, Columban missionaries live in solidarity with ordinary people and, together, they move forward to improve their social, economic and spiritual lives, always with Jesus Christ as their guide.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR PRIESTS & DEACONS OF THE FUTURE
The priesthood has been essential to the life of the Church from the time of Jesus to today.
INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF THE CHURCH
Pray – for vocations to the Priesthood.
Encourage – those who have the calling, give them the courage to say ‘Yes’.
Donate – to support the cost of training men to the Roman Catholic Priesthood and Diaconate.
In costs £30,000 a year, for six years, to sponsor each seminarian. We therefore rely on your generosity of heart to fund our Priests of Tomorrow. Thank you.
If you are interested in discerning a Vocation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.rcsouthwark.co.uk/vocations.htm.
