National Friends of the Poor Walk at St. Vincent’s Saturday
Participants are invited to join a “National Friends of the Poor” walk scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, on the grounds of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, located at the corner University Street and Northmoor Road in Peoria.
A nationwide event sponsored by the St. Vincent de Paul Society, this marks the first time a local walk will be hosted within the Diocese of Peoria. Proceeds benefit the various local conferences of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, which offer person-to-person aid to the poor and needy.
Support can be offered either by being a walker, supporting a walker, or by making a donation. Sign up can be done online at Friends of the Poor Walk or prior to the event itself.
For more information contact Julie Brooks at (309) 369-4187, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants are invited to attend the 4:30 p.m. Mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church following the walk.
