St. Vincent de Paul Society
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a volunteer Catholic lay, national, and international organization where men and women strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering. This commitment follows in the tradition of the Society's founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
In our Mary Mother of God Parish, the Society members witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. People are helped during emergencies, sudden crises, and financial difficulty by having their problems addressed with understanding and mutual respect. Appropriate plans of action are determined so that working together reasonalbe solutions can be broached. All with attenion to privacy and individual needs.
There are many needs to be addressed including housing and utility assistance, job training and placement, access to food and clothing, transportation, and home management. If you are overwhelmed by these and other issues, please call the parish office for assistance. A Society member will meet with you.
Each year the Mary, Mother of God Parish conducts a Fall collection for our St. Vincent de Paul Society.
