The St. Catherine conference is an active affiliate of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), an international lay Catholic organization focused on offering person-to-person service to those in need. Our SVdP Ministry provides services to needy and suffering families within our local community, who are experiencing temporary difficulty due to illness, unemployment, personal tragedy or other unexpected challenges.
Examples of services offered by SVdP include:
Rent / mortgage assistance
Food / meals programs
Urgent home repair / maintenance
Shopping / errands
Assistance with funeral expenses
We also provide advocacy and assistance in obtaining federal, state and local services to address longer-term needs. If you or someone you know would benefit from these services, or if you’re interested in supporting this Ministry with your time, talent or treasure, please contact us
