St. Vincent de Paul Conference

St. Vincent de Paul Conference

 

What is a St. Vincent de Paul Conference?

  • The SVdP Society is a lay Catholic organization that responds to the needy throughout the world.  At St. Wenceslaus, we have a conference that helps people who call our parish when they have a desperate need.
  • Conferences provide financial assistance to people in the form of food, rent, utilities, and other necessities. 
  • Conferences respond to other needs in the community, such as food pantries, assistance to elderly and disabled, mentoring.

 

What does our St. Vincent de Paul Conference do?

  • Home Visits - When the church receives phone calls from people in need of help with rent, utilities, food assistance, and other needs, we make personal contact with them, usually meeting them in their home.
  • Pantry Sundays -First Sunday of every month.  Food is collected for the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry at 2101 Leavenworth St., open Tues. and Thurs., 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Caring for Others Volunteers provide transportation, odd jobs, companionship, and other assistance to the elderly, handicapped and homebound in our parish area.
  • Poor Box collections - Money collected goes to our SVdP conference to help the needy who call for assistance.
  • Twinning -  We contribute financially to other St. Vincent de Paul Conferences when they have a client with a large need.
  • Clothing / Household goods drives- St. Wenceslaus has two clothing drives:  Spring and Fall.  You can drop off gently used items at the truck in our parking lot.  The SVdP stores then give away or sell clothing, as needed, including winter coats.
