Social Concerns Ministries

Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Mission

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

St. Vincent de Paul First Communion Project

St. Vincent de Paul First Communion Project

We have been partnering with our SVDP Pantry in Perth Amboy for a number of years for their annual First Communion Project. Low income families in the Perth Amboy area rely on the pantry for many needs. Some families that have children preparing to receive First Communion cannot afford Communion outfits and accessories for their children. The pantry provides these, based on donations from our local SVDP Conferences.

If you can help with gently used First Communion outfits or other First Communion accessories, please bring them to church on the weekends of March 16‐17 or March 23‐24. We will be in the Narthex to collect them. As always, we thank you for your generosity.

The St. Bartholomew Conference

Our conference meets on the second Monday of each month at the Parish Center at 7:30pm. We can be reached at 732-597-1507 or by email at info@ebsvdp.org. If getting involved and helping others is something you've been meaning to do, please consider this an invitation to join us!

Spirit of St. Vincent

“In other words, amid the thicket of precepts and prescriptions, Jesus clears a way to seeing two faces, that of the Father and that of our brother. He does not give us two more formulas or two more commands. He gives us two faces, or better yet, one alone: the face of God reflected in so many other faces. For in every one of our brothers and sisters, especially the least, the most vulnerable, the defenseless and those in need, God’s very image is found. Indeed, with the scraps of this frail humanity, the Lord will shape his final work of art. For ‘what endures, what has value in life, what riches do not disappear? Surely these two: the Lord and our neighbor. These two riches do not disappear!’” (Pope Francis, Apostolic Exhortation: Gaudete et Exsultate, 2018, #61)
