The Society of St Vincent de Paul Holy Trinity Conference
The Society of St Vincent de Paul Holy Trinity conference funds donated by parishioners using the monthly envelopes provide Emergency Assistance to needy families in the area and quarterly Foreign Twinning with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of St. Martin de Porres in Belize City, Belize.   The primary objective is a person to person home visit to help those in need.  The conference sponsors many other ongoing programs at Holy Trinity. The most visible, is the weekend Mass Food Pantry collection taken up by children (adults can participate too!) during the Offertory.
Here is a list of the programs the conference supports:
  • Food Pantry (this helps St Augustine Parish and St Mathews Area Ministries)
  • Emergency Assistance and Home Visits to clients for basic human needs (rent, utilities, etc.)
  • Monthly  Friendship Visits to home-bound parishioners and in assisted living facilities
  • St Vincent de Paul Truck collecting household items such as clothing, appliances, furniture, etc. twice a year
  • Quarterly Foreign Twinning with St. Martin de Porres in Central America

The Mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.
Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
