St. Philomena's Home Visit


The Society of St. Vincent of Paul from St. Louis Parish, spent a day with the Kids at St. Philomena's Home.


Some of the memebers spent time with the older girls discussing substance abuse, the many dangers of it and how our societydeals with it, while the other members spent time with the younger girls

at the pool area.


St. Philomena's was started in 1895 by Mother Mary of the Cross and after many obstacles, eventually planted its roots in Sydenham in 1975.  Today it is a well established home which lies in a quite and well secured enviroment which consists of 40 girls between the ages of 6 to 19 years old and has 8 housemothers, one cook, one Child and Youth Care Manager and a Social Worker.

Family work is kept at its highest confidential level and the society is always appreciative of donations in cash, items or assistance.  The Societymeets every monday night at 7 pm and welcomes new members.
