St. Vincent dePaul

The St. Vincent de Paul Society meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the school. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we 
meets twice a month as members prepare to distribute food to families that need help in providing traditional holiday meals. 
 If you are interested in joining this wonderful ministry and following in the footsteps of St. Vincent in helping the poor, please come to one of our meetings or call the rectory for more information. 


 Christmas Food Baskets  

The St. Vincent de Paul Society will be preparing and distributing food baskets at Christmas again this year.

We will prepare and deliver the baskets on Saturday, December 16. We ask that volunteers arrive at 8:00 a.m. in St. Peter’s School Cafeteria. If you can help, please join us. If you have any questions, or if you know anyone who could use a basket, please call Mike Roemer at 472-4886.  We will need the person’s name, phone number and address.

We unexpectedly lost one of our major contributors of canned goods for our holiday food baskets. We ask that you help us out by contributing more canned food and dry goods to our food barrels this year. It would be greatly appreciated. Barrels are located at each entrance to the church. Thank you!


 Your St. Vincent de Paul Society is here to assist individuals and families in our community who have no where to turn for  help, for food and living assistance. Contact the rectory at 754-4118. 

St. Peter’s St. Vincent de Paul Conference wants to thank all of our parishioners for their loyal and generous support monetarily and for placing nonperishables in the barrels at the entrances of the church. Your donations are used locally when needed or forwarded to Heart, Love and Soul where the need is extreme. The need is great especially over the summer.

Your SVDP Conference has set up a fundraising account at the Lewiston Redemption Center where you can return your deposit bottles and cans and donate the proceeds to us. Just bring your bag of redeemables to 820 Seneca Street (next to Greg’s Pools and around the corner from the library) and the Redemption Center staff will do all the work. While it is an easier way to return bottles and cans, it will also go a long way helping us assist the poor and needy in our community! Thank you and God bless you for your generosity. Questions? Call Jim Allen at 754-8897.

Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society (or Vincentians) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually through acts of charity. They believe that our blessings of time, talent and treasure are meant to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need. 

Blessed Frederic Ozanam, together with other young students, founded the society in 1833 in Paris. They developed their method of service under the guidance of Sister (now Saint) Rosalie Rendu, a Daughter of Charity who was prominent in her service in the slums of Paris. The society is named for St. Vincent de Paul, the universal patron of charitable works. 

The religious congregation he founded, the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians), sponsors Niagara University.
