Who is the Our Lady of Mercy St. Vincent de Paul Society?

We are a parish group of men and women who are called to follow Jesus Christ through service to our neighbors.

  • They are parishioners and non-parishioners who experience a temporary financial set back.
  • They are single mothers who have missed a paycheck due to a
    child’s illness.
  • They are people living paycheck to paycheck where one
    unexpected expense, like a car repair or medical bill can cause
    them to get behind on rent or utility payments.

  • We visit them in their homes and listen to their needs and
  • We help them with rent or mortgage payments, utility payments or food certificates.

Last year, with God’s grace and parish donations, the Our Lady of Mercy’s St. Vincent de Paul Society assisted 79 families! That is 79 families who were able to stay in their home, have their electricity or water service restored. Thank you again for your continued support. Please keep our society and those we help in your prayers.
