General Announcements 

St. Vincent de Paul conferences in central and southern Indiana in urgent need of furniture, funds

Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, several St. Vincent de Paul conferences in central and southern Indiana are in urgent need of furniture and funds to help the many who are turning to them for assistance.

Bloomington St. Vincent de Paul Society has provided free furniture to Monroe County households for more than 20 years. In 2020, 5,147 furniture pieces, 336 major and minor appliances and more than 1,100 non-voucher items (sheets, blankets, silverware, etc.) were distributed to more than 700 unique households. The conference is now in desperate need of furniture and funds to keep the furniture operations going.

To schedule a furniture pickup in Monroe County or to make a financial contribution, call 812-961-1510 or go to www.svdpbloomington.org. Checks made out for St. Vincent de Paul may also be sent to St. Vincent de Paul, 1413 E. 17th St., Bloomington, IN 47408.

St. Vincent de Paul in Brown County continues to be the primary emergency food responder for Brown County. They have distributed more than 100 tons of food since the start of the pandemic. Now operating two 26-foot Freightliner trucks, their gravel parking lot no longer meets the challenge, especially when trying to move pallets of food on pallet jacks. The conference is seeking funds to cover the cost of surfacing the lot.

To contribute online, go to stagnescatholicnashville.org or stvincentdepaulbrowncounty.com. Donations may also be sent by mailing a check made out for St. Vincent de Paul directly to P.O. Box 577, Nashville, IN 47448.

In fiscal year 2019-2020, St. Vincent de Paul Indianapolis gave 1,584 dining sets, couches, dressers and chairs and 432 refrigerators, washers, dryers and stoves to those in need. The demand has only increased, making the organization in great need of furniture, particularly couches, living room chairs and recliners, kitchen tables and chairs, dressers, end tables and coffee tables, as well as appliances.

To schedule a pickup, call 317-687-1006. Donations may also be dropped off at the St. Vincent de Paul Distribution Center at 1201 E. Maryland St., in Indianapolis. For a complete wish list of items needed and a lit of items the organization does not accept, go to cutt.ly/SVDPIndyItems. †

 

All are invited to join Knights during Prayer Vigil for Life on night of March 19

As part of the 40 Days For Life spring campaign, the central Indiana Knights of Columbus will hold an all-night vigil for life in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility at 8590 Georgetown Road, in Indianapolis, from 7 p.m. on March 19 through 7 a.m. on March 20.

All are invited—including non-members—to pray for any amount of time during the 12-hour vigil.

The vigil will begin with the Stations of the Cross, led by Msgr. William F. Stumpf, archdiocesan vicar general. At 8 p.m., Father Christopher Shocklee, a priest of the Diocese of Lafayette who serves as the Indiana Knights’ associate state chaplain, will lead participants in prayer.

All attendees will receive a special St. Joseph prayer card to mark the saint’s March 19 feast day.

For more information, contact Indiana Knights of Columbus State Life Director Larry Kunkel at 317-223-4892 or life@indianakofc.org.

 

Virtual ‘Shelterbration’ on March 11 will raise funds for Becky’s Place in Bedford

A virtual “Shelterbration” event to raise funds for Becky’s Place shelter for homeless women and children in Bedford will take place at BeckysPlaceBedford.org at 7 p.m. on March 11.

The event includes an online silent auction of items beginning on March 4 at bidpal.net/beckysplace (PIN is 6480).

The virtual event on March 11 will include residents’ success stories, results of the silent auction and awards.

Each year, Becky’s Place provides services to more than 100 women and children to move them into more sustainable housing. Services include offering shelter, meals, case management, support services, counseling and more.

To become a “Shelterbration” event sponsor or to donate, go to cutt.ly/Shelterbration.
