The St. Vincent de Paul Conference
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a Catholic lay organization of women and men who join together to grow spiritually and offer person-to-person service to those in need in the tradition of its patron, St. Vincent de Paul. Worldwide in scope, our St. Gabriel – St. Mary of the Hill Conference is geared to the needs of our Parish members and the local community.
Referrals from our pastors, parish nurses, fellow parishioners, and other agencies in Washington County are followed by a home visit by two members to determine specific needs. Visitors are sensitive to confidentiality and respect for the dignity of those contacted. Assistance can vary from: basic needs of food, clothing, medical needs, and financial counseling; homeless prevention through help with rent/utility bills; or, just being a good listener.
The St. Vincent de Paul Ministry is an opportunity for parishioners to answer the call of those less fortunate. The Conference meets on the first and third Mondays of the month and membership is open to all parishioners. Parish members fund the work of St. Vincent de Paul through personal contributions and the Mass collections on Holy Thursday and Thanksgiving Day.
Parishioners may call the Parish Office, 262-628-1141 to seek assistance, refer someone in need, or for more details regarding this Ministry. Contributions to the St. Vincent de Paul Society are tax-exempt and can be sent to the Parish Office.
