SVP 80 years of services to the Leeds Community

on 29th March 2017 members of the Leeds branch of St Vincent de Paul Society celebrated 80 years of service to Leeds community with Mass celebrated by Right Reverend Marcus Nigel Stock, MA, STL, Tenth Bishop of Leeds at Christ King Parish, in Bramley.

St Vincent de Paul Society is active in 150 countries and has nearly 600,000 members worldwide. In England and Wales, its more than 10,000 volunteers annually carry out more than 500,000 recorded visits. The essential work of the Society is person-to-person contact, and, as this is a fundamental part of the Society’s ethos, it does not make donations to any work in which members are not personally involved. However, it recognises that material or financial assistance may help those it visits overcome crises and develop longer-term solutions to their problems.

At the beginning of the Mass, Bishop Marcus blessed the new organ which has been installed in time for the Holy week services.
