The role of our St. Vincent de Paul council is to provide assistance to individuals or families who find themselves in basic need for subsistence. Members interview those who arrive at the parish requesting help or may conduct a home visit to the poor or needy to evaluate their needs and to provide assistance. Guardian Angels is able to provide food baskets and help provide for medical and utility needs. Special projects consist of a semi-annual clothing collection and collections to provide for summer camp programs and the special needs of our clients. Oplatki and calendar sales are other fund raisers.
Membership in the council requires a concern for those in need, rational decision-making and respect for confidentiality of the client. Meetings are held on Wednesday evenings throughout the year. For more information or to volunteer to assist or to join contact the parish office at (248) 588-1222
