The purpose of the Society is the spiritual development of the members and the living out in practical ways of the Catholic faith.

 

The Society “seeks, in a spirit of justice and charity and by person-to-person involvement of its members, to help those who are suffering… No act of charity is foreign to the Society.” (Rule of the Society)

 

The Society hopes to help meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those who need help, whether they are in hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters, prisons, or in their own homes. Each day a member of the Society responds to a call for help, bearing witness to the love of Christ.

 

“Catholic in character, the Society is open to all who wish to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbor.” (Rule of the Society)

 

The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an international, Catholic lay organization, founded in 1833 in Paris by Frederic Ozanam and his companions. The conference meets every Monday evening at 7:00 PM at the parish office. The conference meets to discuss weekly business, share in fellowship, and grow in its mission as Vincentians.

 

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few…” (Luke 10:2) The parish’s continued financial support is necessary for the society to function. The members of St. Vincent de Paul serve as an intermediary between those able to help and those needing help within the parish boundaries.

 

St. Vincent de Paul needs people with time to serve. Everyone has something to offer. Everyone has room to grow.

 

Meetings are held Mondays at 7:00 PM in the church office.
