Society of St. Vincent de Paul

 

http://smmcc.org/images/svdp%20logo.jpgThe Society of St. Vincent de Paul is inspired by Gospel values and leads men and women to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederick Ozanam and its patron, St. Vincent de Paul.  

As “Vincentians,” we are united in a spirit of poverty, humility and sharing to demonstrate the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. 

The mission of the Society of St. Vincent De Paul at St. Mary Magdalene is to serve those who will go hungry and/or need a financial boost to get them through these tough times. We are blessed by the generosity of our parishioners who make it possible.

FOOD PANTRY

Financial Assistance is available by appointment only on Mondays* from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Please call (864) 288-4884 and ask for St. Vincent de Paul at ext. 4268 for English or ext. 4274 for Spanish. This is a voicemail only line. A receptionist will return your call and give you information as to what to bring to your appointment. If you block calls from private numbers, you will not be able to receive a call back.

Our goal is to “Grow in Faith” by ministering to those who seek our counsel by being kind and showing love, for love is our first gift to the poor.  “Serving with Love” is a daily part of our Vincentian spirit as good stewards in our parish community.   Being a Vincentian is a calling to be a modern-day disciple of Christ.  

 “. . . For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink. . .”
