St. Vincent de Paul at Holy Rosary
ABOUT OUR HOLY ROSARY CONFERENCE
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is a worldwide Catholic lay organization founded in 1833.
Holy Rosary is one of 19 conferences (parishes) comprising the Evansville District Council.
Our members are women and men who strive for spiritual growth as they serve those who are suffering and in need.
SVdP Vincentians serve in Hope, that God will provide the resources and volunteers to complete His work, to relieve suffering, and to reveal Christ’s deep love for all mankind in service to those in need.
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” -- Matthew 18:20 NAB
EXAMPLES OF OUR WORK
In our recent fiscal year, our Holy Rosary Vincentians were able to assist our friends and neighbors in need with over $51,000, making 470 home visits, helping 1,125 people. We volunteered almost 1,700 hours, and drove nearly 5,000 miles.
HOW WE SERVE
Holy Rosary’s St. Vincent de Paul Conference visits our neighbors in the geographical area of our parish who have called the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s coordinator’s office asking for help. These families are living on the edge, month to month, and facing evictions, shut offs, medical emergencies and layoffs.
A team of two Holy Rosary conference volunteers meets with each client to discuss his or her need. Conference volunteers currently make 2 to 5 home visits a month.
