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, October 8th 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 (kids under 10 are free) is requested for participation and includes a 4.4 mile walk/run (or a distance that is comfortable for you), an event T shirt and water bottle.   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 29th  and 30th, but we encourage everyone to pre-register online by clicking the following link:
