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.

From Oct 1st thru Nov 30th, because of your generous support, the following has been accomplished:
18 sets of groceries (valued at $2,250) have been distributed;
$1449.13 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). Six of these went to members of the parish.
We have also been able to provide household furnishings to a needy family with 3 children. Our outreach has touched 48 families since the beginning of 2017.
Without your generous support, this would not have been possible. Please pray that our economy will improve, making it possible to these families to be independent.
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 to the parishioners of St. Patrick & St. Stanislaus parishes for your generosity.
