“We should spend as much time in thanking God for his benefits as we do in asking him for them.”
-St. Vincent de Paul
Ways to get involved with St. VdP:
How do I know if I can receive financial assistance?
Our St. Vincent de Paul outreach can assist you if you live within our parish boundaries, which are within the confines of Nursery Road, Highland Avenue, and Ulmerton Road. You can also view a map of our parish boundaries by clicking here.
What matters can you help me with?
We commonly assist with utilities or rent. Based on our resources at the time of your call we may be able to assist with food, clothing, furniture, or medication. We also can refer you to other agencies and organizations for matters that we are unable to help you with.
We also organize an annual Thanksgiving Food Drive and Christmas Toy Drive, which will be promoted in our parish bulletin and website closer to the date.
What do I have to do in order to receive help?

After verifying that you reside within our parish boundaries, they will seek to assist you as best as they can.
We invite all who worship with us to give donations to the Poor Boxes in the church narthex. This provides the funds that allow us to assist the many individuals and families we serve.
