St. Vincent de Paul Outreach Ministry

Board of Directors

The primary work of the St. Vincent dePaul Outreach Ministry is to provide food on a monthly basis to needy and disadvantaged neighbors within Duval County. This ministry also provides Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets to its clients, and through the Parish's Annual Giving Tree, provides Christmas gifts to children of the ministry's clients as well as children from another pre-selected church or organization.

 

 

 

Parishioners donate canned goods the first Sunday of each month, and contribute monetary donations through the Churches two Poor Boxes, located on the back columns inside the sanctuary. Money from an annual fund raiser and the Poor Boxes is used to purchase items needed to ensure recipients of the monthly food distribution receive a balanced selection of food.
