Friends of the Poor Walk

St. Joseph’s Church is once again supporting the St. Vincent de Paul “Friends of the Poor Walk/Run” over the Ocean City Bridge from Somers Point on Sunday, September 25th beginning at 12:00 Noon.   The proceeds from the walk will provide SVdP with funds to support special projects and help our local neighbors in need.  

Registration, rain or shine, will take place in the parking lot of Circle Liquor Store at the base of the Ocean City Bridge in Somers Point beginning at 11:00 a.m.  The walk will begin promptly at 12:00 Noon.  A donation of $15 dollars is requested for participation and includes a 4.4 mile walk/run (or a distance that is comfortable for you) and an event T shirt.   Parking is available at Circle Liquor Store (away from the building), municipal parking lot near Somers Mansion and the Crab Trap overflow lot.  

Pre-registration will take place at St. Joseph Church after weekend masses on September 18th and 19th, but we encourage everyone to pre-register online by clicking the following link:   

If you would like to raise additional donations from family and friends, please feel free to share the link.  All cash or check donations can be brought with you the day of the event.
