Saint Vincent de Paul Society Ministry

The mission of St. Vincent de Paul is to grow spiritually through prayer and service to those in need in the community.  Participants in this ministry pair up to do home visits in responses to calls of need that come into the rectory. Becoming a member of SVdP does not require a commitment to participate in home visits.  Members also support each other in prayer and sharing of ideas on how to best raise funds and distribute them.


This past fiscal year (10/1/20 - 9/30/21), Vincentians made 67 Visits serving 89 adults and 54 children.  Through your generous gifts, SVdP was able to provide a total of $29,871 in financial assistance to needy individuals and families in the Danvers community.  This included $8,962 in rental assistance, $6,118 for food, $3,117 for utilities, $2,919 for moving & storage fees, $722 for car related expenses, $700 for gift cards (in lieu of clothing vouchers), $675 for gas cards, $600 during the Christmas holidays for needy families, $425 for furniture, $207 in emergency housing, and $130 for excise taxes.  We also provided $5,296 for miscellaneous requests that did not fall into one of the above categories, but where it was discerned that the need was very real (i.e., phone bills, medical expenses, internet set-up, Uber, home repairs, household items, etc.).

So many lives were touched by your generosity.  Even as your own lives have been up-ended by the pandemic, your support for SVdP ministry has never wavered!  We are forever grateful for that.

News: Recently SVdP expanded its community outreach to include the underserved population of seniors residing in one of our local nursing homes. We provided clothing items for twenty-one (21) senior ladies and gentlemen who no longer had family or friends who could do that for them. Click here to see photos of this endeavor.
