The annual Thanksgiving Mass is a significant event in the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria's calendar. It takes place traditionally at St Francis Church in the CBD where the Society was established in March 1854 and the venue for its first meeting.
The Thanksgiving Mass is a special event that takes place early in November, as part of the Remembrance Masses that happen across the State on the 8th. This year in 2022, the Thanksgiving Mass will take place at St Francis' in Melbourne CBD and a live stream will be provided below.
Now that COVID restrictions have passed, it will be great to celebrate in person and online. It will be a significant event for all of our members, volunteers and employees. Our aim is to ensure that all members, volunteers and employees are able to participate in the service.
Our Thanksgiving Mass remembers, honours and celebrates the lives of those who have passed away during the last 12 months.
