The St. Vincent de Paul Society is
a parish-oriented organization of men and women who have joined together to
help their neighbors in need.
The society as a whole is unique and the following are some of the guiding
1. Spiritually, to strengthen the
members of the church as Christians and bring them closer to God, when we reach
out to those in need by simply making a compassionate phone call or visit.
2. Living within our faith is what
keeps us as a community strong and united when we help someone who is down on
having a crisis in their life.
3. Modeling acts of kindness and
goodwill will bring a brighter tomorrow when providing assistance where
assistance is needed.
4. Serving the needs of those that
are hungry by preparing meals, serving them.
