     St Vincent de Paul Society

The Saint Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) is a lay organisation which was established in 1833 by a young Frenchman, Frederick Ozanam, to look after the poor, the lonely and the destitute in his native Paris. Since then SVP branches, or 'Conferences' as they are called, are to be found throughout the world carrying on this work by serving vulnerable members within their communities.

Members of the Towcester conference visit the housebound, the sick and those in need and organise simple parish activities such as a pub lunch and coffee after Mass. Our meetings are held roughly every month at 6pm in the Lombard Room, and they normally last an hour. The dates are published in the church newsletter.

In 1992 our conference set up links with Polokong, a children’s village in South Africa. To find out more about Polokong See the Polokong Page.

Do you know someone who is housebound and would like one of our members to visit them? Could you help us by sparing an hour a week to visit someone? Or perhaps you would like to know more about the work of the SVP? If so, contact our parish priest, Fr James, and he will arrange for a member of the SVP to get in touch with you. Alternatively, speak to any member of the SVP at coffee after Sunday Mass.

 

 


Children's Liturgy

The Situation post Covid is currently under activ review to see how we can best serve the younger members of the parish



First Communion Preparation

The First Communion group are children in year 3 aged 8 years who are learning more about their relationship with Jesus.
  • They talk about their First Sacrament, Baptism, and the start of their faith journey.
  • They discover Gods Love and how to make things right.  This is through stories from Jesus.
  • They talk about their lives and how they can show Gods Love
  • They make the Sacrament of Their First Confession.

The children are invited to become closer to Jesus by making their First Communion.

They discover the meaning and importance of the last supper and why we come to Mass on Sunday.




 Confirmation Classes

On 25th June 2022 Bishop David Oakley confirmed 7 young people at the evening mass.  This was a joy filled occasion for all who gathered.

Fr James is reviewing how best to prepare for and  celebrate this Sacrament and will up date this page  in the future .  Do please make contact with Fr. James for all enquiries
