Summary: St. Vincent De Paul Ministry, Outreach Affiliations

St. Vincent De Paul Ministry

Part of the larger, world-wide Society, the group at St. Leo’s operates a food pantry for service to those in need within our parish boundaries. Members are responsible for preparing boxes of food, based on requests processed at the Rectory Office, and distributing those boxes Tuesday through Friday. The group also sponsors a bimonthly distribution of fresh produce and Thanksgiving baskets. The work is funded by parishioners through a second collection on the 5th Sundays of the month.
