If we had even a tiny hint of this love, would we remain with our arms folded? Would we allow to perish those whom we could assist? Oh no, charity cannot remain inert and inactive.

What We Do
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in St. Louis is a non-profit organization providing personal assistance with furniture, food, clothing, rent, utlities, transportation and companionship to people facing economic, emotional or spiritual crisis. An essential part of the Society’s work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.
The St. Vincent de Paul is supported by donations from St. Joseph Parishioners, the St. Joseph Church, the St. Joseph School, the St. Joseph PSR, the Knights of Columbus, the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, the Women’s Ministry, CRHP, the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts, the VIPs, the Youth Group, the Athletic Association and other Parish organizations.
We are people who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to others in need. We are young and old, but all of us are blessed with awareness that our gifts of time, talent and treasure are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need. We have no special education or training, just a heart for others. We provide a source of Help and Hope.
We know that we are not alone. We are part of an international society of friends, united by a spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing nourished by prayer and our fellow members.
Energized by the awareness that service to our brothers and sisters in need is in fact an encounter with Christ, we are keenly aware that poverty, suffering and loneliness are present for a countless number of individuals in our community.
You do not have to be Catholic for us to serve you. We serve you because we are Catholic.
