The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers assistance to those in our community who have a need for day-to-day living. Our organization meets twice a month and periodically conducts fundraisers to raise money which helps to facilitate this ministry. Our parishioners support our ministry through donations of non-perishable foods and other items, monetary contributions and support of our fundraisers.

Here is an update based on our activities since the fall of 2017:
From Oct 1st thru Feb. 28th, because of your generous support, the following has been accomplished:
61 sets of groceries (valued at $7,625) have been distributed;
$7,018.17 has been used to pay utilities or rent. Some of the payments were made on behalf of members of our Parish.
We also provided 11 Thanksgiving Dinners (valued at $1,650).
We are so blessed for the Parishioners of St. Patrick’s and St. Stanislaus. Whenever we send out a request for something in need, you always come thru. As we celebrate Palm Sunday, please keep in mind Jesus’s mission for us, which is to serve the poor. Please be as generous as your means will allow helping us continue this needed ministry. With the economy improving, and jobs becoming more available, please pray that we can turn our focus onto more long term goals, such as training and budgeting.
Thank you and God Bless.
