St. Vincent de Paul Society

The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Peter Church is a group composed of all types of people, young and old, English- and Spanish-speaking, who desire to love Christ in the poor.

Inspired by the life and spirituality of St. Vincent de Paul, the members, or Vicentians, extend care to the less fortunate who live in our parish boundaries.

Our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society oversees many charitable efforts, including but not limited to participation in neighborhood community meals for the hungry and homeless in the area, weekly assistance with utilities and material needs, hosting food and coat drives, providing the annual Thanksgiving Day Meal for those in need and missing family, managing the Angel Tree that provides gifts to the poor and aged at Christmas time, and stocking the St. Peter food pantry.

"Charity is certainly greater than any rule. Moreover, all rules must lead to charity. Since she is a noble mistress, we must do whatever she commands. With renewed devotion, then, we must serve the poor, especially outcasts and beggars. They have been given to us as our masters and patrons" (St. Vincent de Paul).
