Saint Vincent de Paul

Commissioning Ceremony

On Sunday September 27,2015 the feast of our patron, St. Vincent de Paul, we gathered at Annunciation Church to celebrate.  In the brief ceremony 19 new Vincentians who have proven their commitment to SSVP were presented with a Rule (our Rule and Statutes Canada book) from their Conference following an introduction and blessing by Deacon Hyland, Spiritual Advisor for Edmonton Central Council.  Vice President Gail presented wooden fish necklaces to each.  Seasoned Vincentians voiced and renewed their commitment while the candle was held by John for our new members.  Our family grows, and the work continues.  Special thanks are offered to Mother Teresa Conference of Annunciation parish and President Marlie for hosting.  The camaraderie shared over coffee was a delightful way to welcome the new and celebrate the experienced for all the fine work done!!

Here are some pictures.
