St. Vincent de Paul Society
Our St. Vincent de Paul Society is part of an international Catholic lay organization that offers person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in our area.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society have already provided a variety of financial, emotional and spiritual support for those in need. If you are interested in learning more about the Society or how you might become a member, please call the parish office at 262-275-2480. Check the parish calendar for meetings dates and times. Our usual time is 7:15pm every other Wednesday.
If you would like to make a financial contribution, please drop it off at the office or place it in the regular Sunday offering, specifically marked for the use of the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Our fundraisers include pancake breakfasts and fish fries. Pancake breakfasts are held approximately Spring-Summer. Fish fries are held every Friday during Lent (expect Good Friday). Proceeds are given to specific groups in the parish and the community. Specific causes in the past have included Pregnancy Helpline of Walworth County, VIP, and St. Joseph Orphanage in India. Help is needed with planning, food preparation, shopping, advertising, and serving. If you would like to help, contact Pam Deiters, 262-245-5299.

Please place your monetary donation in either the poor boxes or collection basket (checks made payable to Big Foot Area Food Pantry) the first weekend of the month.
