Last May 7, the members of the Vincentian Marian Youth-Slovenia held a Benefit Concert at the Parish Sv. Jakob ob Savi. Living out the Vincentian Charism which taught us to always help the less-privileged, the event was organized aimed to raise money for the summer holiday of children whose parents cannot afford for them. This has been an annual activity for this VMY Group.
The leader of the local VMY group Katarina Pavovec came into contact with the two choirs of the Parish Sv. Jakob ob Savi to plan and organize the event. Announcements were made and parishioners were invited to the concert. There were three performers: the Children and Youth choir of the parish, the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul and the members of the Vincentian Marian Youth of Slovenia. The three groups alternated in presenting during the program. The presentation of the story of the Miraculous Medal was also included.
To truly celebrate this occasion of generosity and kindness, after the concert, the people shared a banquet of food. This was also an opportunity for those who attended to socialize and share their time with each other. Before everyone went home, each one was gifted with a paper angel with a Miraculous Medal attached to it leaving with happiness and contentment in their hearts.
