Our aim is to bring the healing mind, compassion and understanding, acceptance, encouragement and availability. The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul helps the poor through visitation, food vouchers, food box program, clothing vouchers, furniture and our Christmas program. Our founding Father F. Ozanam said, “Let us be patient, and wait for their questions and opinions that will come if they find we are good and will listen to them.” If you would like to volunteer with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, contact the parish office. A police reference check is required to participate in this Ministry.

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul now has new blue colored envelopes available on the table in the Narthex. If you would like a tax receipt for your monthly contributions to our poor box, please feel free to use these envelopes.
