Society of Saint Vincent de Paul on Vancouver Island
Our Lady of Guadalupe Conference, St. Patrick’s Parish
Activity Report for the month of July 2022

Dear Parishioners:

Vacationers and visitors aren’t the only ones who have been travelling this summer. Here is a summary of the many travels made by our conference members...........


• Our delivery teams made visits to 10 homes in July. 24 adults and 17 children received well stocked hampers.

• Another fun food shop at Save On Foods with our Adopted Family this month. The mother graduated from the Health Assistant Program and the father passed his Chef’s Red Seal Exam. Their oldest son underwent major dental work, and has since resumed roller skating, with younger brother alongside him on his bicycle.

• A record-high number of 338 people were served Sunday lunches at the Downtown Community Kitchen. These increasing numbers have stretched thin our monthly grocery budget for this program.

• No requests for Start Up Kits from Rose Harbour in July. In the meantime, donations from the Food Bank continued, along with shopping for Kit items, and preparation of a baby shower basket for our Adopted Family (baby due in early December) .

• A monthly meat purchase was delivered to Second Chance Recovery House for men. Since its inception 30 years ago, over 3500 men have been given a Second Chance.

• A summer camp was in place at Cedar Elementary School. The lunch program provided 20-25 daily lunches. They enjoyed making their own lunches from our purchased food. They especially loved the “cool” treats.


• The Gold River Food Network joyfully announced a bigger space at their existing location, which was recently acquired at a reduced monthly rate.

• The SVDP-Tahsis Community Cupboard is actively seeking 2 fridges and 2 large chest freezers to accommodate the frozen meats, dairy and produce they have been receiving. Call Paul Bertrand at 250-204-3312 if you can help out. Thank you!

• Zeballos, Ehattesaht and Oclucje First Nations are very grateful for the variety of monthly supplies of frozen meats they have been receiving from SVDP.

Thank you for your continued support of donations and prayers over the summer. Have a sun-filled, fun-filled, spirit-filled rest of summer. God bless you all!


The construction of the St. Patrick’s Church extension and renovation is well under way. To keep the parishioners of the parish informed of the progress of the task, an ongoing series of photos indicating various phases of the effort is being uploaded and may be accessed by clicking

We thank you for your prayers, helping hands and continued financial support. God bless you and say a little prayer.

Recycle for the Building Fund Thank you to everyone who is contributing to the building fund by dropping off rinsed milk containers, bottles and cans at the back door of the church hall every Saturday 10 am till noon. The current total is $32,892.00! Thank You!
