The focus message of the Saint Vincent de Paul appeal this year is one that I would commend to your consideration – “Say Yes to the St Vincent de Paul because your help can last a lifetime.”
This simple message is a good one. It not only points to the huge amount of good work that is carried out daily in Ireland; it also reminds us that its good effects are lasting, in cases right through a lifetime.
Appeals for assistance remain at record high levels and the Society is endeavouring, as always, to respond to requests in a timely manner.
I would ask that you continue your very generous support of the annual Appeal. Your generosity down through the years has been immense and it has made a huge difference to the lives of those who find themselves in need.
