St. Vincent de Paul Society

Purpose

St. Vincent DePaul Society members assist those in need with food and financial assistance in emergencies.

Commitment

Blankets and funds are collected before each winter to help the homeless and the poor stay warm in the winter. Financial support for the St. Vincent DePaul Society is received from monthly church envelope donations, the poor box in the church, and from 4 to 6 pancake breakfasts. The work of this organization is done anonymously and in the strictest of confidence so that no one feels ashamed to ask for help.

Preparation

No prior experience is necessary. If you are interested in helping St. Vincent DePaul as a member or wish to volunteer to serve at a pancake breakfast, please contact the parish office.
