#FaithChat

Because we were a bit slow at finalizing and promoting the launch of #FaithChat, our new program for high school-aged Catholics, and because everyone was swamped by the busy start of the school year, we have decided to postpone the Chats which were to take place in October and to launch the program with our November Chats, instead. Please spread the word among your high-school aged students, their friends and your neighbors. Each “Chat” takes just one hour a week for three weeks. The program is specially designed to give young people a chance to discuss and explore our faith; please visit our webpage and consider trying it.

As part of our continuous faith journey we wish to make available to young people a new avenue of growth, called #FaithChat, designed specifically by St. Boniface parishioners for our high school-aged Catholics.

#FaithChat consists of a number of “Chats” on various topics which take place in sessions throughout the year.  Each chat meets one day a week for three consecutive weeks.

Participants may choose one chat or several among sessions in October, November, January, February and March on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.  Chats take place in welcoming and comfortable new meeting areas which have been created in the school building and the Parish Center.

This video will tell you more about #FaithChat.  Our #FaithChat booklet and registration form are below.

St. Vincent De Paul Society

St. Vincent de Paul

We help people!

In a spirit of justice, charity and personal involvement, this ministry seeks to provide aid and comfort to the poor, the afflicted and the lonely.  Members of the Society make personal home visits; provide advocacy and support usually in the form of food vouchers, financial assistance, clothing and furniture.  (Training provided.)

“Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread”.  When we pray the Our Father, we ask God to provide our food and necessities. The majority of us receive sufficient food. Others do not. We can be our Father’s instrument by providing “bread” for the needy, particularly during these difficult times. You do this by your contributions to the St. Vincent de Paul Society

Thanks to all who contribute to our St. Boniface St. Vincent de Paul Conference. We were able to help many of our neighbors. Some people had no money for food, others no beds – they were sleeping on the floor – or there was no heat or electricity!

Help Those in Need on Long Island by donating your gently used furniture to the St. Vincent de Paul Society

  • We pick up items
  • We give furniture to our neighbors in need.
  • Your donations are tax-deductible

Buying a new car? Donate Your old one!  Donate your car, boat, motorcycle, or truck to help others!

Help us help others on Long Island by donating your motor vehicle, boat or even real estate.  Proceeds from sales of these items will go directly to helping our neighbors in need.
