St. Vincent de Paul
The Saint Vincent de Paul Society relies on donations from our parish family, members of the community, the Salvation Army, and other local organizations to help those in need. Throughout the Panther Valley area, we have posted flyers advertising our emergency food pantry services. Those in need simply pull a tab from the flyer and call the parish office. They will receive a return phone call from one of our members, who will assess their needs and deliver food to their door.
