St Vincent de Paul Society, a worldwide Catholic Society, is composed of Christian lay persons seeking to develop in themselves a life of charity through friendship and participation in Society works bearing witness to the love of Christ. Most members of the Society are voluntary workers who freely undertake to devote some of their talents, and resources. We pray, discuss our concerns for those in hardship, evaluate what has been done in the past week and what can be done to help those in need, and we enjoy each other’s company. At other times, we go out in pairs to visit those in need, sharing friendship and charity. We distribute food, clothing & furniture and we provide some limited financial assistance where we can to alleviate hardship.
Our parish consists of several Vinnies volunteers who reach out to the most vulnerable in our community. For more information on what Vinnies does, visit their website.
