The organizations of any parish play an important role in shaping the core of the parish community.
Perhaps even more so in a small parish where parishioners not only demonstrate their faith, but as active members of the parish organizations support our parish and surrounding community, making Richwoods a better place to live.
We invite everyone to join our members
in these organizations.
The quilters donate their time and talent to produce beautiful
hand-made quilts that are used for parish support throughout the year.
All are invited to join us for quilting and friendship on Tuesdays. Bring a sack lunch.
This is a wonderful way to learn how to quilt if you don't know how or share your talents if you are an old pro.
We always looking for additional quilters, please join us.
St. Vincent DePaul Society
St. Vincent de Paul Society is the oldest Lay Catholic organization in our country whose sole purpose is to help those in our parish community who are need of help.
It was founded by Blessed Frederic Ozanam, a young man of 20, in 1833 in Paris, France. The founding group consisted of six men, who placed themselves under the patronage of St. Vincent de Paul - the "Apostle of Charity " - and derives its inspiration from his thinking and work.
From these humble beginnings, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has grown to an international organization, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.
The St. Stephens St. Vincent de Paul Society runs a Thrift Store in what was once the Suiter's General Store on State Highway A in Richwoods.
Through the store, the society provides merchandise to shoppers at reasonable prices, generating income and other necessary help for the needy. The Store relies on donations from the community for its stock and the community has been has been very generous.
We can always use helpers in the store. The ladies are looking for more volunteers to help a little. If you can spare a Saturday a month from 9 A.M. to 2 P.M., please call Helen Boyster, Aurelia Valle or Juanita Shaftner or the Rectory.
The Society also collects Aluminum cans which can be dropped off by the uphill side of our garage. May God bless you for your cooperation and efforts.
We are always looking for Choir Members to add a Sound of Music to
our Christmas Mass, weddings, funerals, special functions, or Sundays.
So, please come join us in praising God in song.
We practice each Sunday after 10:00 A.M. Mass for about 30 minutes.
