  • Thank you for your generosity to St. Vincent de Paul during Catholic Schools Week.  We filled four barrels with food and personal care items for our neighbors in need.  80% of the items collected were those most needed by St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.  Congratulations to the junior class for bringing in the most items. Students who want to help our neighbors in need are invited to join Roger Bacon's SVDP Conference.  Our next meeting is Monday, February 11th, during Flex.  For questions or information, contact our President, Anna Perry (aperry@rogerbacon.org), or our advisor, Ms. Vehorn (jvehorn@rogerbacon.org).
