Society of St. Vincent de Paul

 

st vincent de paul 

The St. Vincent De Paul Society Conference of St. Robert Bellarmine Parish was formed in 2006 by  parishioners wishing to grow spiritually through personal service to those in need within our community. We make our visits making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ. The vision of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is to ” embrace the world in a network of charity.”

Since formed, our Parish Conference has helped hundreds of men, women, and children in need. In 2015, we provided help for 98 people as well as 33 families at Christmas.  Donations are used for food, rent/mortgage, and utilities assistance as well as emergency funding.

If you know of anyone in need who would benefit from our services, please call 267.644.8189. The call will go directly to voicemail. All calls are normally returned within 48 hours.

We are supported through the generosity of St. Robert Bellarmine parishioners through individual donations and funds received from the poor boxes located in the large holy water fonts in the rear of the church.  Thank you for your generosity on behalf of those we serve.

If you are interested in joining the Conference, please call 267.644.8189 for more information.
