ST VINCENT DEPAUL
The Mission Statement of St Vincent de Paul:
A network of friends, inspired by the gospel values,
growing in holiness and building a more just world through
personal relationships with and service to people in need.
SVDP is a Catholic-based volunteer organization that provides assistance to people in need, on a personal basis in the surrounding area. We have very active SVDP chapters at both of our clustered parishes. Needs are assessed through home visits, and assistance is provided through aid for rent, utilities, food vouchers, gas cards, clothes, household goods and referral services. SVDP also assembles Thanksgiving baskets in November, coordinates our Giving Trees in December, and helps assemble back-to-school backpacks for families in need, to name just a few of the many ways they help our own parishioners and others in area.
If you would like to get involved with St. Vincent de Paul, or are in need of assistance, please call either of the parish offices. Monetary donations are always needed and appreciated as well.
How much time/commitment is required to be a member?
---- 200 years ago a French teen-age college student named Frederic set out to serve the poor, combining justice and charity. Today the worldwide ministry named after the 17th century saint is in over 150 countries.
