St. Vincent de Paul

The goal of St. Vincent de Paul is to bring hope to the hopeless by supplying love, food, clothing, assistance, and other emergency needs. The society helps the poor and those with temporary needs as well. It is a Catholic ministry that sees the face of Christ in the faces of those who are suffering.
