St. Vincent de Paul


The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a Catholic lay organization which involves its volunteer members in helping situations with those who are in need. SVDP helping includes any person-to-person assistance that promotes human dignity and integrity. In addition to assistance with the material necessities of life, members visit and offer companionship to those who are homebound, hospitalized, or confined to institutions.

As a reflection of the family of God, SVDP members are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. They form small groups called "conferences" that meet regularly, pray together, and carry out their selected charitable works. They are united in the worldwide movement of the St. Vincent de Paul Society by a common philosophy and mutual sharing.

Share Sunday

Our monthly Share Sunday is held the first Sunday of every month. All donations will benefit our own St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. If you’ve forgotten your food donation, you can always drop it off in the Narthex next week, or consider making a cash donation to our Poor Boxes. Thank you for your generosity to this ministry.
