Mission of St.Vincent de Paul

Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. All of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent and treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need. We are part of an international society of friends united by a spirit of poverty, humility and sharing which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers tangible assistance to those in need. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential precept of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless.

We are very grateful to those willing to donate household goods or furniture for our friends in need through Saint Vincent de Paul, Holy Spirit Conference. Small household goods can be donated by contacting Kay Fox at  kayfox@svdp-rochmn.org or 507-269-3512. Due to our lack of dedicated furniture storage space, if it's possible we ask that you hold your items until a match is made with a friend in need. If that's not possible, we may be able to make other arrangements. Again, contact Kay Fox at kayfox@svdp-rochmn.org or 507-269-3512.
