St. Vincent de Paul Society
St. Vincent de Paul lived in France in the 17th century. He was the founder of the Congregation of the Mission, and with St. Louise de Marillac, founded the Daughters of Charity. He spent his life caring for the poor.
Our Walpole St. Vincent de Paul Society follows the example of its founder. We provide spiritual and financial support for those who are struggling financially. We provide assistance with food, heating, housing costs, and temporary assistance with shelter. We look for the face of Jesus in those we serve.
Our poor boxes are one way you can support our mission and help the poor. The poor boxes located near the front and side doors of our churches. We have a second collection three times a year, which accounts for a majority of our funding. All donations, by check or cash, are welcome. If paying by check, please make your check out to SVdP. 80-100% of your gift supports the poor right here in Walpole and is distributed by the Society of St Vincent de Paul. Because of your generosity, our Walpole conference of SvdP has been able to help hundreds of local families in their time of need.
On your way out of church please say a special prayer for the poor and forgotten, as you place your gift in the poor box. Thank you on behalf of those who have received your gracious gifts!
Please call 508-476-6003 if you are in need of assistance and we will get back to you and schedule a home visit.
