The Society of St. Vincent De Paul is a worldwide Christian community founded in Paris in 1833 by a group of young Catholic lay people. The Society’s purpose is to serve Christ by seeking and finding the needy and forgotten. Vincentians serve the poor with friendship, trust and profound respect. They do not judge those whom they serve; they seek to understand and help.
We at St. Lawrence Martyr are very fortunate to have a viable group of hardworking members. We are, at all times, striving to help those in need.
The St. Lawrence Martyr Chapter of St. Vincent De Paul provides assistance with rent, ulitities and general support for our fellow parishioners and others in need. We feel that this is God’s work and are priviledged to be of service to our brothers and sisters in His name!
In the past year, we have established a can and bottle drive to assist in supporting the outreach of St. Vincent DePaul. Parishioners and members of the community can help to support the work of St. Vincent De Paul by saving their empty, clean, cans and bottles which are eligible for redemption, then deposting them in the collection containers at the rear of the church.
Should you know someone in need of St. Vincent De Paul services, or if you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Suzanne Sullivan at the St. Lawrence Martyr Rectory Office.
