Inspired by the Gospel, members of the Ministry of St. Vincent de Paul strive to make God’s love real in the world through service. Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and offering person to person service to those who are in need or suffering.
St. Vincent de Paul Society strives to bring Christ's love and compassion to those in need in the Seattle community. The Society, directed by a team of student board members, counts over 60 students as active members each year. Major projects for St. Vincent de Paul Society include:
Annual Christmas Family Partnership, a student-led project that works with local families in need to help them provide food, household necessities, holiday meals, and gifts.
Teen Feed, a local meal program for homeless youth and young adults receives meals once a month, prepared and served by students.
St. Martin de Porres Shelter, a local emergency shelter for 250 elderly men per night, receives a home cooked meal once a month, prepared and served by students.
Annual Hunger Retreat, a student-led all night retreat that takes place during Lent. The retreat includes a 24 hour fast, education and advocacy for hunger and poverty issues, community service projects, and Mass.
