From a report of Joffre Moine for the Jan.09 VOICE.

Our primary mission is to offer emergency assistance to our neighbors in need, providing sustenance, shelter and the necessities of life support as best we can. The volunteers of our conference carry out this mission in a variety of ways through the generosity of St. Mary Magdalene parishioners, school children and the support of our fellow Vincentian Conferences.

We continue to carry out this mission through referrals from JOIN; providing food delivery to those who are without food and means of transportation to local food banks; providing utility and rental assistance; providing transportation assistance for work related interviews and jobs; providing furnishings for living quarters. Our Bereavement Committee helps bring a spirit of closure to family and friends of the deceased members of our parish by offering a meal at the parish hall following the final rites of our faith.

As a conference of St.Vincent DePaul we volunteer to assist our neighbors in the Appalachian demographics of our Diocese by sponsoring a parish clothing drive each Fall for the St. Francis Center in McArthur, Oh. In our own community; we sponsored a parish response to Respect For Life Month, by seeking donations of baby items; we sponsor a winter coat drive for the Hilltop Free Store to support our ministry; through the generosity of our school children we made a large contribution of food items to an area church operated food pantry; our volunteers support and co-chair the annual Free Thanksgiving Hilltop Dinner; we are actively involved in The Hilltop Christmas Gift’s for Children program, providing 200 gifts for our less fortunate neighborhood children.
