The St. Vincent DePaul Society at St Catherine Laboure parish is a very active organization which provides direct assistance to people living within our parish boundaries.
There are 19 members of SVDP at SCL, who meet every other week to discuss the needs of those who have requested assistance. The members also make home visits in pairs when a neighbor in need has contacted the society. The purpose of the home visit is to see the face of Christ in those needing help, and to be open to hearing their story while assessing their needs and providing support thru financial assistance or connecting them to community resources.
SVDP at SCL is always looking for more members. If you would like to help the poor and grow spiritually in friendship with other like minded people please consider joining us. If you would like to join or would like more information, please contact Paul Lodewyck at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
