Saint Vincent de Paul Society Ministry

The mission of St. Vincent de Paul is to grow spiritually through prayer and service to those in need in the community.  Participants in this ministry pair up to do home visits in responses to calls of need that come into the rectory. Becoming a member of SVdP does not require a commitment to participate in home visits.  Members also support each other in prayer and sharing of ideas on how to best raise funds and distribute them.

 

This past fiscal year (10/1/18 - 9/30/19), Vincentians made 136 Home Visits serving 176 adults and 163 children.  So many lives were touched by your generosity!  Because of that generosity, the Saint Vincent de Paul Society was able to provide a total of $63,759 in financial assistance to needy individuals and families in the Danvers community!  This included $18,703 in rental assistance, $17,429 for utilities, $8,132 for food, $1,650 for clothing, $1,558 for furniture, $2,196 in emergency housing, $3,698 for car repairs/payments/insurance, $3,797 for moving and storage fees, $1,415 for gasoline/gift cards, and $1,200 during the Christmas holidays for needy families.  We also provided $3,981 for miscellaneous requests, e.g., house repairs, prescriptions, new bedding, children’s lunch programs, etc. 

 

So much was accomplished this year – more than we could have ever imagined was possible – and it was only because of your unbelievably generous support.  We have been truly blessed to be able to make a difference in the lives of so many Friends and Neighbors.  Please continue to keep us in your prayers.  Thank You and God Bless!
