St. Vincent de Paul

The St Vincent de Paul Society is a volunteer organization to whom "No Act of Charity is Foreign;" providing emergency assistance such as rent, utility, clothing, household items, medical, food and referrals to other agencies when when appropriate. Families and individuals who find themselves in difficult situations contact the Society for emergency assistance.

St Philip Parish has a team of St Vincent de Paul representatives who actually make home visits when a call comes through from someone within our parish boundaries in need of assistance. We visit the home and asses the needs and offer assistance through various channels.

St Philip also has a group of volunteers who sort merchandise that comes in through the St Vincent de Paul blue bins. They work every Wednesday morning from 8-12 and can always use more help. We also have volunteers who work in the stores checking out merchandise.

If you know of anyone who is in dire need of assitance, have them call the St Vincent de Paul Office at 435-4040. If you are interested in participating in any of the areas listed above, please call the Parish Office (468-7848) for more information.
