SOCIETY OF ST.VINCENT de PAUL CONFERENCE AT
ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI PARISH

MEETS SEMI-MONTHLY IN THE AUDITORIUM

IF INTERESTED IN JOINING,
PLEASE CALL: (631) 651-2655

Today we are a group of twelve dedicated individuals who are following in the foot steps of our founder Blessed Frederic Ozanam, who started the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Paris, France in 1833. Today, the Society is an international organization with over one million members world-wide. Frederic believed that the creation of the Society was a gift from God so that the work of feeding the hungary, clothing the naked and many other forms of charity would allow those attracted to the Society to see Jesus in the poor of the world.

 

 

 

 

We serve those in need within our Parish boundaries regardless of their race, ethnic origin or religious affiliation. We respond with home visits, bringing food and offering assistance with clothing, furniture, paying heating and other bills with money as far as our funds will allow.

We distribute Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to those we have helped throughout the year. Our ministry at St. Francis would not be able to function without the continued support and generosity of our fellow parishioners and friends who support the monthly food collection on Sundays and contribute to the poor boxes. We are always seeking new members willing to make a committment to this special ministry.

Our main source of revenue comes from the Poor Boxes in the church. Help us to help our own needy. Any contribution is greatly appreciated!

FOR ASSISTANCE, PLEASE CALL THE RECTORY OFFICE AT (631) 651-2655. (Assistance given within parish boundaries).
