About Us

Who We Are

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. 

How We Help

We help needy clients who have experience unexpected setbacks in their financial situation. We have helped clients with rent/mortgage payments, car payment/repairs, utilities, and medical/prescription expenses. Find more regarding clients we have helped with below.

How We're Funded

The majority of our funding comes from our very generous parishioners, but we also have awesome sponsors and donors who donate to our fall dinner dance which helps us continue our ministry. Please view our 2017 sponsors and donors below. Please consider to be a sponsor or donor for our great cause to help our local communities.
