St Vincent de Paul
The Vocation of the Society’s members is to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love. Members show their commitment through person-to-person contact.
Thanks to all of our Partners in Ministry who have helped us serve those in need in the Portland Metro area. Over the past year, your overwhelming generosity has enabled the St. Vincent de Paul society to provide free food, clothing, furniture and financial aid to our sisters and brothers in need during difficult times. We are run entirely by volunteers, of whom many donate 20 or more hours a week.
Join us in this humbling and rewarding ministry. Donations are always welcome. There are donation barrels located in the church narthex and in the parish hall entry way doors. Please contact us for more information.
What’s more American than backyard barbecues, picnics in the park, and get togethers with family and friends sharing favorite recipes? Most of us take these things for granted but there are many in our community who struggle to put food on the table and feed their children regularly. The OLL Knights of Columbus “All American Summer Food Drive” begins on Saturday July 1 and runs until the Summer’s End Festival on Sunday, September 10. Our goal is 5,000 pounds of food and other non-perishable items. Click on the link to read more and see how you can help. Thank you.
