St. Vincent dePaul

Our St. Vincent de Paul volunteers made and served dinner for the homeless at Tent City IV in December 2014.Parishioners in our Holy Innocents St. Vincent de Paul Conference (SVdP) volunteer to help others in need throughout our community. The Vincentians make home visits to assist the needy by offering compassion and financial help. The conference receives funding from the donations of our parishioners. They meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. in the lower level of the church. For more information about SVdP, and to learn how you can volunteer, please contact Carrie Harris.

The Society of St Vincent de Paul exists to respond to those in need in a person-to person manner. We help people regardless of race, creed, national origin or age. We strive to see the face of Christ in everyone we serve. You can help us in this mission of charity. Your financial support will enable us to have the resources to meet the basic needs of those who desperately need help. We are currently seeking more volunteers to help in this service.
