The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic lay organization that helps those in need or living in poverty. We visit the homes of those in need to bring them financial assistance or sometimes simply to listen.
We assist with food & gas vouchers, rent & utility assistance and other miscellaneous needs, and help connect people with local help agencies. Our number is 507-676-5508. We serve a free take-out meal on Tuesday nights at St. Joseph Parish 512 S. Elm, 5:30-6:30pm.
We are not a social service agency, but a person-to-person Catholic ministry (serving people of all faiths or no faith) that sees the face of Christ in the faces of those who are suffering.
We are funded by donations and are always of need of volunteers. We meet the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at St. Joseph Parish.
