Saint Gerald

Saint Vincent de Paul Society

Founded in 1833, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide organization of lay Catholics, following Christ's call to serve the poor, the suffering, and the deprived.

Our founding activity, still practiced today, is the Home Visit. Through these visits, Vincentian members establish personal relationships with our neighbors in need, not only providing material assistance such as rent, utilities, food, or clothing, but also offering friendship, understanding, and prayer.

Our Parish chapter of the Society assists those with immediate needs of food, clothing, furniture and emergency financing. Calls to the parish office and referrals are followed by personal contacts and additional help as needed.

In addition, all collections taken up on Holy Days of Obligation are contributed to the St. Vincent de Paul organization. Thus, we help our own as well as many others in need.

Please donate generously on Holy Days and if you feel called to serve those in need directly by joining our chapter of the St. Vincent de Paul society, please contact the parish office.

The Comfort of His Love
When I'm in need of courage, On Him I can rely
I merely need to ask His help, For He is standing by.
He fortifies my waning strength when pressures take their toll,
And little heartaches make it hard to keep tears in control.
He gives me hope for better times when treasures slip away,
He inspires me with flowing faith that clearly lights my way.
I'm grateful for His blessed intervention from above,
But most of all, I'm grateful for His sweet, unselfish love.
- Catherine Janssen Irwin
