25th Anniversary Benefit Dinner A Success!The 25th Anniversary of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society conference Ss Peter and Paul the Apostles Church celebration was a huge success. On Friday evening November 18th, 2016 members and supporter of Saint Vincent de Paul gathered in the Msgr Moretti Center to celebrate 25 years of serving the needs of others. We broke beard together enjoyed the company of new and old friends. While enjoying all the festivities the attendees also provided support through the purchase of raffle tickets which garnered winners with great prizes. We also enjoyed some great talent from parishioners ranging from dance to comedy and of course singing. In fact the entertainment was so good that though we won’t be celebrating our 25th Anniversary next year we will be holding a benefit dinner and “talent show” in the future, so please watch for the date and come join us in the fun!.
