Saint Vincent de Paul Ministry

 

Society of St. Vincent DePaul  

Natick Catholic Community Conference

 

The Society of St. Vincent DePaul is a worldwide ministry of the Catholic Church which was established in Paris, France in 1833.  The conference serving the needy in the town of Natick was established in 1945, providing aid for rent, food, utility payments, clothing and help with other life necessities.  Since its origins at St Patrick, the Society has been helping those in need throughout the entire town, regardless of the individual’s religious affiliation.  We do not proselytize but do impart the message that our help and concern is motivated by a belief that we are fulfilling the command of Christ as He taught us to feed the hungry, cloth the naked and shelter the homeless.  

How we can help you

A confidential call to our dedicated SVdP number (508- 509-1736) will be answered by one of our members who will seek to make an appointment for a personal visit by two members who will evaluate your need, share that need with other members, and then make a group decision as to the level of help that we feel we can extend.

Join our Group 

The SVdP Conference that is associated with the Natick Catholic Community extends an invitation to parishioners of both St Patrick and St Linus to join the Society.  Our group consists of a dozen dedicated men and women who seek spiritual growth by helping the forgotten, the suffering or deprived.  We meet on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 7:00 pm where we participate in a brief time of prayer and meditation followed by a business meeting, plus a discussion of pending requests for assistance. If you are interested in joining our group, please call us at 508-509-1736 and leave a message.

Financial assistance

The work of the Society is made possible by the generosity of the parishioners.  Your support, either by leaving money in the collection baskets at the doors of the churches or by using the blue envelopes found in the church pews, is our primary source of funding.  Occasional larger bequests are also welcomed.  All our funds are, with rare exception, directed to the needy in the Natick community.  In the past year the SVdP has helped the needy of this community with a monetary value of almost $35,000.  That amount made the lives of over 400 individuals happier and more secure.  This level of care cannot continue without your support.
