Light, Many Candles
Noel Paul and Rev. Betty Stookey
A benefit program to provide basic needs for families such as
beds, stoves, refrigerators and food
in Milwaukee County through the St Vincent de Paul Society home visit and meal
multi-faith program in word and song reflecting the diversity
and integrity of individual faith seeking a global spiritual community.
Elizabeth & Noel Paul Stookey
have been working together for over 50 years, as husband and wife, as parents,
as business partners and activists. Noel is a singer-songwriter and the “Paul” of Peter Paul and Mary. He has
been writing songs that reflect on the political, cultural, sociopolitical and
spiritual dynamics of all of our collected stories for decades. Betty

chaplain of a school, over a thousand students of many faiths ranging from

Thank you so much for helping us keep children warm this winter!
A HUGE THANK YOU to All Who Supported The Backpack Drive!
We want to extend a BIG Thank You to United Health Care, the customers of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores, our Vincentians & our wonderful St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store staff for their generosity!
