We are called Vincentians. We bring a wide variety of gifts to share
with our brothers and sisters in need.  Our meetings are twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. All are welcome to attend and explore how you can assist the Society.

On the second Saturday of each month, supplemental food boxes are delivered to low-income senior citizens at Bethany Villa. You will deliver food (7-8 boxes per person 9:15-11 AM) from St. Anastasia. Substitute drivers are also needed. Teams are rotated throughout the year so your assistance is needed 3-4 times a year. This ministry is great for family participation! Boxes are heavy so you must be able to carry them.
