Social Concerns Ministries

Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international organization of lay Catholics who organize into small working groups known as “conferences”. At this grass-roots level Vincentians are engaged in person-to-person service with troubled persons and families in their immediate neighborhood.

Three specific ways we support our mission are:

  1. Through preparing, delivering, and serving meals every other week at the Ozanam Family Shelter in Edison
  2. Through collecting and distributing food through our own local Food Pantry here in our parish
  3. Through person-to-person casework with troubled persons and families in our immediate neighborhood

Spirit of St. Vincent

“We cannot truly be disciples of Christ unless we, too, wait to hear God’s call and respond by transforming our lives, evidenced in the simple willingness to be obedient to God’s will. This means more than keeping the commandments, it means that our whole lives are directed to waiting and listening for God’s self-revelation. Sometimes this revelation comes through others—perhaps in their cry for help. Sometimes the revelation comes through prayer in which we take some time to listen to God. However, when the revelation or call comes, if we respond, we will be transformed. And Jesus will turn and ask us, ‘What are you looking for?’ “ (Living Liturgy, p.42)
