St. Vincent de Paul

St vincet de Paul - St Joseph Church GowandaThe St Vincent DePaul Society is a worldwide Catholic lay organization who's mission is spiritual growth by serving the poor, sick and forgotten as Jesus would. Low key and confidential, we focus on identifying with their suffering by meeting them where they live: becoming effective listeners to their plight, taking action to provide temporary material aid when needed, and, as appropriate, guide them to other resources that could better help them lead a decent and happy life. The Society has been active at St. Joseph's for many decades. We meet twice per month on Monday's and are financed by donations made independent from the parish. For more information, visit us at one of our meetings as announced in the weekly church bulletin.
