SOCIETY OF SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL
The Society of St Vincent de Paul is a lay Catholic society, founded in the Catholic Church in France by Blessed Frederick Ozanam to seek out and assist the poor. Our call is to “Go Out the Poor” to support and assist them in their physical, spiritual, or social needs. No work of Christian charity is beyond the scope of the society.
The aim of St. Vincent de Paul Society is to bear witness to the faith in the exercise of true charity, development of charitable projects and of social justice. Volunteers do home visits within the parish boundaries to the needy. In addition, St. Vincent de Paul Society organizes toy drives, giving trees etc., during the Christmas season when the poor feel especially vulnerable and depressed.
We have regular meetings at the parish, the first and Third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm and you are most welcome to join us in our mission.
For information or to assist, please contact us by leaving a message at 250-762-2577.
