The Society is an international organization of lay Catholics who seek to grow in holiness by following Jesus' clear commandment to all of us to help the poor and needy around us. We call ourselves "Vincentians", in tribute to St. Vincent de Paul.
We are a Society of people listening to people's struggles and hardships and trying to help them in the best way we can.
We are a Society of people offering smiles and a listening ear; hope for those who feel as if they will never stop struggling, to those who see no light at the end of the tunnel.
We are a Society of people delivering food bags with a smile; of dignity delivered to those who need it most – a fresh perspective and a view of the possibilities.
Long Sleeve Shirt Drive, April 29-30
Your Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More SVdP Conference is asking you, our fellow parishioners, to join us in a Spring long-sleeved shirt collection drive to help farm workers in Quincy.
These folks work with pesticides and in the hot sun daily to provide us with good, healthy food. Used, cotton, long-sleeved, button-down, dress shirts (men’s or women’s) provide them protection against these threats to their health.
Stains are not a problem since they may be worn only once before having to be discarded because of the excessive soiling by pesticides.
Drop off your shirts the weekend of Saturday, April 29th-Sunday April 30th before or after Masses in the collection bins immediately inside the Church doors or in O’Brien Hall.
We pray for the men and women who gather our food and thank you for your donations, support and prayers.
Ozanam Sunday, April 30th
2017 marks the
of the birth of the Vincentian charism. Join us Sunday, April 30th, after the 10am Mass in O'Brien Hall for an open house celebrating this major milestone in our lay apostolate's history and enjoy coffee and dounts on us!
We will have tables full of books, videos, flyers and other material explaining who we are and what we do. Register to win one SaintlySilver Handmade Felt Saint Softies of either Blessed Pier Girogio Frassati, or Saint Louise de Marillac or Saint Catherine Laboure.
Consider joining with us in service to our neighbor or sign up to volunteer with one of our community outreach activities.
