Young people help get Circle V Ranch ready for boys & girls
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul's Council of Los Angeles would like to THANK all the young Vincentian (volunteers) who completed an amazing amount of work this past weekend (including building two stone walls by hand) at the Society's Circle V Ranch Camp in the Santa Barbara Mountains.
The more than 30 Vincentians who participated at the camp site - located in the Los Padres National Forest near Lake Cachuma - traveled from Our Lady of the Rosary of Talpla Young Adult Conference (Boyle Heights); UCLA-Frassati Conference (Westwood); Holy Family Conference (South Pasadena); and the Vincentian Service Corps (Boyle Heights House).
A joint project of the Society’s Camp department and Young Vincentian Desk, this is the first of three such service-related weekends at Circle V Ranch this year. The next one is scheduled for February 19-21.
Please contact Manuel Sánchez, youth/young adult conference coordinator, at 323-226-1757 for more information.
Thanks to St. John Bosco High School students for your day of service to the poor and homeless at St. Vincent de Paul of Los Angeles.
