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 (10/1/19 -- 9/30/20), Vincentians made 72 Home Visits serving 93 adults and 49 children.  Through your generous gifts, the Saint Vincent de Paul Society was able to provide a total of $25,483 in financial assistance to needy individuals and families in the Danvers community!  This included $9,602 in rental assistance, $5,560 for food, $4,025 for utilities, $1,335 for security deposits, $580 for clothing, $450 for miscellaneous gift cards, $390 in emergency housing, $274 for excise taxes, $269 for furniture, $175 for gas, $150 for moving & storage fees, $90 for car related expenses and $300 during the Christmas holidays for needy families.  We also provided $2,283 for miscellaneous requests that did not fall into one of the above categories, but where it was discerned that the need was very real (children’s aftercare programs, camp, legal and phone bills).  So many lives were touched by your generosity.  It’s a very humbling experience to be able to serve our Friends and Neighbors with love and compassion and hopefully make a difference in their lives.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is forever grateful to you…our parishioners!  You have remained ever faithful to supporting our mission!  Thanks to you, we are ready to meet the challenges of the days that lie ahead.  Please continue to keep us in your prayers!  Also, please remember in your prayers all those who have been affected by COVID-19.  Thank You and God Bless!
