Area III Ministries offer outreach services to the broader community
The OMOS Conference of The St. Vincent de Paul Society provides food and other aid to those in need, within our parish boundaries. These services are available without regard to religion, ethnicity or citizenship status. In a single month the Society often provides much needed food to over 600 people, including 300 children! The Society relies solely on the generous support of our parishioners and other benefactors. Food Drive Weekends are held four times a year and food and monetary donations are accepted at any time. Especially helpful are non-perishables like pasta, canned vegetables, peanut butter and jelly and canned soups. Food donations can be left in the Society's boxes in the church vestiblule at any time. Volunteers are always welcome!
