St. Vincent de Paul Ministry Information

What does this ministry/group do?

The aim of the Vincentian (Volunteer) work is the development of relationships between individuals and God. By their work, Vincentians help develop and help this relationship by transforming situations which make the lives of people less human-situations which prevent relationships from developing with one another and with God.

Vincentians as they are called, help with needs of food, rent, or shelter, utility bills, furniture, and clothing. This hands - on ministry helps empower individuals within our community to find and unleash their interior motivation to take control over their own lives and find ways to solve their own problems.
