St. Vincent de Paul

Person-to-Person Service

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference at St. Joseph Parish serves the poor, adhering to Gospel values. We make in-home visits to listen to those in need and support them, as resources allow. We are volunteers who strive to live up to the standards set by the Society's founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

The generous donations of St. Joseph parishioners, collected after Masses on the first Sunday of each month, provide the means by which we can help people in need with food, clothing, rent, bus fare and utility bills. We have no overhead expenses, so 100 percent of donations go to help the people we visit.

We Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by a spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection. Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. We collaborate with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.

We meet on two Monday evenings per month at 7 pm in the Parish Center, and welcome people of all ages. Join us!
