SVDP Donation Opportunities

Serving with a spirit of justice, charity, and respect,
 the Society helps those in need within our community 
with food, utility bills, rent, and other life necessities. 
 Your contribution will help the 
St. Ferdinand-St. Vincent de Paul Society carry out their mission.

Ways you can help the St. Ferdinand Conference of St. Vincent de Paul
  1. Be a Vincentian in Prayer (VIP) - Prayer is a vital aspect of the work we do to assist those in need. Prayer guides us. Prayer sustains us. Prayer leads us to trust in Divine Providence. Prayer keeps us focused on how we are called to build community with our clients and how to assist with their needs.
  2. Become a member of St. Vincent de Paul - There are many ways in which you can help.  Just call 314-289-6101, ext 2216, and leave a message.  A vincentian will call you back.

"Charity is the cement that unites communities to God and individuals to each other
so that he who contributes to the union of hearts in a community
binds it indissolubly to God."
