Parish Life



The Society of St. Vincent de Paul leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person to person service to those in need and are suffering within our community.
Through the support of our parishioners we provide both financial and food assistance to those in need through case work.   We need adult caseworker volunteers who are interested in meeting with and helping those in our community who need assistance. You will always work with at least one other volunteer and will have an opportunity to begin working with and observing other volunteers as part of your training. This is a flexible volunteer opportunity that offers wonderful fellowship and friendship while drawing nearer to Christ as we serve him in our journey to holiness. To be part of this ministry please contact Liz Fox @ svdpofsf@gmail.com
If you are in need of financial assistance or help from our food pantry please text or email your name, address, a brief description of your need,and a phone number to   svdpofsf@gmail.com
