In November, we looked at the story of St Vincent de Paul.
Together, we chose some sentences to share the story with you.
Vincent de Paul was born in France about four hundred years ago. Vincent's family didn't have a lot of money. He worked hard on the family farm and always remembered to say his prayers. One day Vincent told his father that he wanted to be a priest . He told him he wanted to spend his life helping people to be followers of Jesus. Vincent worked hard, but there were a lot of people who needed his help. Together with his friends, he raised money to help people who were poor by asking people who had plenty to share some of what they had with him. He used this money to set up clean, warm shelters. Many years after his death, Vincent was made a saint. In Ireland today, people still gather in small groups to help others who are in need. These people form the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
We are collecting food for hampers this month, to be sent to SVP.
What a lovely sunny day we got for the first Awareness Ribbon Day run by the Caroline Foundation who raise much needed funds for cancer research. This day was extra special as it was World Cancer Day and also Caroline's birthday. We were so happy to participate in this great event and take some time to remember our much loved teacher, colleague and friend. Thank you so much to everyone who donated their 2 euro and wore their ribbons. Some wonderfully creative things done with the ribbons at home in preparation.. Well done everyone. We moved our Drop Everything and Dance to the yard today as a special treat. Have a look at our photos and dancing below. Thanks again.
