St. Vincent De Paul Society

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

We believe:
• In the dignity of the human person,
• In the preferential option for the poor,
• In the virtues of humility and simplicity,
• In charity and justice within and outside the Society,
• In personal and communal prayer
• In friendship, community, and in the solidarity with each other and with those in need.

The Good Shepherd SVdP Conference is comprised of approximately 20 parishioners, and many volunteers from within the community. Our monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month from 6:30PM – 8:00PM in the Ministry Building. We also serve those in need within the community at our food pantry on Saturdays and Mondays.
