“I decided to be baptised in the Catholic church, as I was introduced into the faith by the SSVP members, and started attending the catechism class. The SSVP volunteers are always so friendly, encouraging and helpful to me, that I want to get to know the faith more.”
~ Peter, Conference of the Holy Spirit FIN , aged 74.
“My life seems to be brighter now and I would like to express much gratitude to SSVP,”
