WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
Founded in 1833, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide organization of lay Catholics, following Christ’s call to serve the poor, the suffering, and the deprived.
Our founding activity, still practiced today, is the Home Visit. Through these visits, Vincentian members establish personal relationships with our neighbors in need, not only providing material assistance such as rent, utilities, food, or clothing, but also offering friendship, understanding, and prayer.
An essential principle of the Society’s work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of our neighbors in need. In addition, the Society recognizes that it must assume a role of advocacy for those who are marginalized or voiceless.
Our heart is big and St. Vincent de Paul Sauk Prairie does our best to assist everyone, however, most of our services are limited to Sauk Prairie, Roxbury, and Lodi residents. Should you live outside our outreach area, we may be able to offer you a more local resource.
