The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Catherine of Siena Parish had it’s roots at St. Vincent de Paul Church since 1959, a year after the society was established. It is a national organization which originated in France with the main offices at St. Louis, MO. St. Vincent de Paul Society is accountable to the State and Federal Governments.
The society does not discriminate against race or religion. The only concern is that the clients served—are in our designated area. The main purpose of the society is feeding the hungry.
The food for the pantry is acquired in various ways. It is purchased from North Eastern Michigan Food Bank, and obtained from food drives (Parish, Post-Office & Thanksgiving). The food pantry is housed at St. Catherine of Siena in the Parish Center. We are supported by monetary donations from the St. Catherine of Siena Mission Fund. Currently, our society has eight teams of two, mostly made up of married couples, who take calls, prepare the orders and to see that the food picked up or delivered. To see the face of Christ in each person/family we serve—is our goal.
