St. Vincent de Paul Society

This ministry serves people who are in need. Our primary outreach for which we volunteer is the food pantry, which is open on Monday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:30 am.

We also help parish shut-ins and those with emergencies.

St. Vincent de Paul Society collects food, aluminum cans and cash donations on a periodic basis, as well as plastic bags.

Donations are collected at the church doors after all Masses.

Thank you for your generosity.
