Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The St. Gerald Conference of St. Vincent de Paul meets the first and third Thursdays of the month at 10:30 am at church.

St. Vincent de Paul is an international parish-based organization that seeks in a spirit of justice and charity to help those in need regardless of race, creed or color.  The efforts of our St. Gerald Conference include:

  • One time emergency assistance for parishioners or those who live in our parish boundaries to help pay for bills such as rent or utilities.  This requires a home visit by two Vincentians.
  • Distribution of food Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  Please call in advance for an appointment to pick up food.
  • Assistance with Thanksgiving and Christmas projects.
  • Parish clothing drives.

To inquire about assistance or to volunteer, please call 248-476-7677 (extension 220).
