St. Vincent DePaul Society

St. Vincent de Paul of Davis

assistance line: 530-979-4338

"The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic lay charitable organization. Our parish conference is committed to serving the short-term emergency needs of anyone seeking assistance.

The conference will consider the needs of any parishioner or any other member of the local community, when circumstances find them without food, shelter, clothing and other necessities of daily living."

WHAT WE DO

The St. James conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was established in 2003 to serve the poor and needy of our parish and our community.

Since its founding, the St. James conference has sponsored a number of special parish events each year including “A Different Kind of Paper Drive,” collecting paper goods to distribute to parishioners in need, and “Sock-It-To-Me-Sunday,” during which clean, new socks are collected for the needy and the homeless.

As part of our semi-annual food offertories, gather complete dinners-in-a-bag which we take to our clients when we visit them in their homes.

St. James Vincentians collaborate with local organizations and churches to serve the homeless and other needy people.

The primary work of the conference, however, is to provide assistance to members of our community who have experienced sudden, unforeseen emergencies. This assistance takes many forms, including help in food, lodging, and transportation or in, short-term, emergency financial support.
