The St. Vincent de Paul Society brings the love of Jesus to the forgotten, suffering and deprived through a variety of charitable works. Members meet the second and fourth Monday at 10:00 a.m. in the Rutkowski Religious Education Center.
The Society sponsors food collection the first Sunday of each month to help meet the needs of people in our area. This food is supplemented by meat and chicken purchased by St. Vincent de Paul and stored in our food pantry freezer. An additional food collection is held Thanksgiving Day. Donations are shared with Holy Rosary Parish and Little Sisters of the Poor. Each Sunday, bakery goods are collected from a local grocery store and delivered to the St. Vincent de Paul Center on the North Side.
St. Vincent de Paul Society collaborates with the OLG Social Minister in purchasing and delivering gifts for needy families at Christmas time, delivering gifts to shut-ins throughout the year, and responding to individuals and families who contact the parish seeking assistance with food, heating bills or other necessities. In addition, the Society manages the book racks in the narthex and poor boxes.
Our organization contributes monthly to St. Vincent de Paul of Prince of Peace Parish in the South Side and St. Vincent de Paul of Sioux Fall, SD (Indian Reservations), and quarterly to St. Vincent de Paul of Nicaragua. Collection bins are located in the upper church parking lot for donations of clothing.
