CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY

Many favourable comments about the Special Mass and Lunch on 14 September 2014 were passed especially about the involvement of our primary and secondary students in Vinnies today. The Minutes of the first meeting of the Society on 16 September 1964 are available. First members of the Sunbury Conference were: L Casey, J Crotty, S D’Altera, W Dignam, D Duggan, R Geyer, M Griffin, J Mullins, J Rush and K Smith.
Fr Con McCarthy PP appointed Mervyn Griffin as President, who then appointed Kevin Smith as Secretary. Fortunately, Kevin was present on 14 September. The Conference at it’s first meeting decided to meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in every month. Hence, 1,200 meetings have since been held—what a jewel in the life of our Church. Thanks be to God.
