The St. Vincent de Paul Society leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
About the Saint Vincent de Paul Society
The SVDP Society is the oldest ministry in the parish, having been originally formed in 1921. It is currently comprised of 13 volunteers and one staff member.
The group meets monthly and operates throughout the year. Its funds come from the annual Thanksgiving collection, donation boxes in the church vestibule, and from the St. Joseph’s Table. The Society provides financial support to those in need, such as assisting with housing expenses for those out of work.
This ministry is linked through the “twinning” program to the nearby parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe in El Sereno. The SVDP Society succeeds through the dedication and spirit of its volunteers.
