The SJN St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) ministry was recently awarded a $5,000 matching grant from the Pope Francis Charitable Trust Fund, a Diocese of Knoxville fund that was created through the Home Campaign. 10% of all dollars raised in parish campaigns were set aside to provide matching grants to parishes to foster or accelerate their local charitable efforts. The SVdP ministry is a source of charity for those coming to the church for assistance. It reaches out to the neediest in our community, offering prayers, support, and resources. We appreciate the generous support of SJN parishioners for making this work possible, as it is the donations to parish charity that help fund this ministry.
