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

Donation Request

Our St. Vincent De Paul conference has a new case of a single mother and teenaged son with an urgent need for apartment furniture. They currently have very little so we would greatly appreciate donations of any usable furniture to help them. Please contact Gary (908-616-1296, if you can help. Thank you for your continued generosity toward our charitable efforts.

Spirit of St. Vincent

“Life according to the Spirit, whose fruit is holiness (cf. Rom 6:22; Gal 5:22), stirs up every baptized person and requires each to follow and imitate Jesus Christ, in embracing the Beatitudes, in listening and meditating on the Word of God, in conscious and active participation in the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church, in personal prayer, in family or in community, in the hunger and thirst for justice, in the practice of the commandment of love in all circumstances of life and service to the brethren, especially the least, the poor, and the suffering.” (Pope John Paul II, The Lay Members of Christ’s Faithful People, #16)
