Monthly Programs

Usually meeting with a chairperson or co-chairs, these groups have a dedicated mission.

Blanket by Faith

A new project kicking off in March by the Vincentian ladies.  The goal is to make fleece blankets for each of our Adopt-a-Family and Giving Tree recipients for Christmas 2014. 

Chairperson: Carrie Brockhaus

Rag Ladies

These ladies sort through donated clothing making sure they are worthy to wear—clothes clean, zippers working, and buttons on.  They work closely with the annual coat drive.

These Vincentians make 200 sandwiches once monthly in the church basement.  The sandwiches are delivered to St. Vincent de Paul Parish for the homeless in South City where 100 people receive 2 sandwiches, a bag of chips, a piece of fruit, and a bottle of water daily.
