“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” (Matthew 25:35–36, NABRE)
St. Vincent de Paul was a 17th century Catholic priest who dedicated his life to assisting the poor. He established hospitals, organized relief efforts to help victims of war, and set up various ministries to collect funds to free North African slaves. Today, we continue to honor his legacy in our service to those in our communities who are in need.
If you’ve fallen on hard times, we understand your plight. Many of us have been there ourselves. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for help. We can assist you with paying your rent and utility bills, buying food and clothing, finding work, and many other things.
An essential precept of our work is to provide help to those in need while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those we serve. If you would like to help in our work, please consider making a donation or volunteering. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm and new members are always welcome.
