St. Vincent de Paul

The Saint Vincent de Paul Conference at St. John Neumann in Canton, Michigan was established in the summer of 2011. We welcome new members and volunteers of all ages and abilities.

If interested in joining SVdP please contact Dan Kessel, via the parish office and please leave your name, phone number and email address if you have one.

You may donate clothing in the Blue SVdP bins behind the church. Also, about once per quarter we have a “Bundle Day” weekend where a POD is located in the rear of the church parking lot for donating clothes and small household items.  For larger items like furniture, you can arrange pick up from SVdP by calling (877) 788-4623 or going online at svdpdet.org/donate/clothing-and-furniture.

Foer monetary donations, SVdP hosts “Top Hat Sunday” on the weekend of the third Sunday of each month.

Purpose & Mission of the St. Vincent de Paul Society

Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (or “Vincentians”) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities. Some of us are wealthy, some of us are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our sisters and brothers in need.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. 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 those whom we serve. The Society recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless. Some 12 million persons are helped annually by Vincentians in the United States alone and the help begins right here in this local community.
