Knights are requested to wear their K of C blue polo and come to mass a bit early and stay a bit later to help collect at the mass they normally come to.

St Vincent de Paul Ministry

About Us

About Us

The mission of the St. Anthony St. Vincent de Paul Committee is to serve the poor.  We help find beds for the homeless, bus tokens, food for the hungry and serve other groups that help the poor.  “We extend mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping.  For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His mercy from us?”

– St. Vincent de Paul


Vincentian reflections are a good guide for Vincentian meetings and discussions.  The year is divided into easy to manage quarters for download.
Serving in Hope is a new spiritual formation program developed by the National Office, for the Conference and Council level. Vincentians must be accustomed to “serving in hope,” because we are called to bring the love of God to those who are poor and suffering.
Membership, Meetings and Events

Membership, Meetings and Events

As a member, you can help feed and shelter the poor. When you join, you can decide the level of time or donations you can give. Maybe you want to help make meals that are delivered once a month. Maybe you want to make a commitment to give regular donations to the “Poor Box” located in the church; these donations fund the work. You might even have the time to come to the monthly meetings to help plan meals and give. Even if you can only come to a few meetings, anything will help.

Meetings are every month on the 2nd Monday at 6:30pm, located in the lower church at St Anthony.  All are welcome!

  • Each month members provide meals for the Catholic Workers House.

  • During Thanksgiving and Christmas basket of meals are provided to those in need at our parish.

  • Giving Tree is also created so that members in the Parish may contribute a gift for the children.
